I decided to have some fun with this question or at least I hope you think so. 🤔 The last few posts have been kinda intense yet funny but this thought kept coming to me. I would read or see something similar on social media “quizzes” with surveys people answer. We all have our own fascinations with celebrities or famous people. Come on, you know who you are or were a fan of! Most will know mine by now as is part of my journey but I do have others.
Who would you want to meet and what would you say or do? Maybe you’d be relaxed or super cool but I bet most of you would have that OMG moment mentioned a lot here. Those questions can be asked of people on Earth or that have passed. If you could hang out with them for a day, wouldn’t that be awesome? I should say ultimate! 😉
This can be for anyone at all you consider famous but really think about it. Would your list be people that are current or maybe even way back in time? It can be quite easy for some but then difficult for others. Religious folks might say Jesus, Buddha, or even Mother Teresa who is a Saint now. Your list can be historical, inventors, or explorers. T.V. or movie stars– it’s all endless. No one is off limits and no celebrity is too silly. It’s your people so have fun with it (:
I keep thinking of who mine would be. Warrior is separate from this but let’s see who is on my list. Probably not who you could or would be thinking… First, I would have Marie Curie. I did a report on her in 4th grade, have a book, and always admired the endurance she undertook in a male dominated field. Harriet Tubman is is another woman whose bravery and sacrifices enabled African Americans the beginnings of abolishing slavery. I have always been fascinated by her story. Our town is known for its Underground Railroad Passageways!
A few different people in the mix are Shari Lewis and John Ritter. Shari was a little ahead of my time but her contagious energy with puppetry inspired so many generations. I loved Lamb Chop and always wanted her for my own. I settled for “Fleecie” which was a beany baby my Mom bought after my car accident. Our kids were even familiar with Shari’s later shows and loved all the puppets.
Jim Henson was a similar performer. I remember being so sad hearing about “Kermit.” He is my favorite Muppet and The Muppet Show was a big staple in our house as kids along with Sesame Street. Puppets were such a part of my teaching career too. I must also add how Grover was second to Kermit for me. For my students, I did a great Grover impression and even received a special Grover book on my birthday once from a co-worker. Of course I kept it… It’s kinda funny how he did “Super Grover” ( ya know– a superhero.) Warrior embodied that too only with face paint and no cape. 💙💪🏻
John Ritter was a comedic genius to me and “Three’s Company” was one of my favorite shows. It ended when I was 12 but reruns are always in syndication. He had so many other numerous roles that contributed to his icon status. I even saw his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and touched it. Ironically, he passed of a serious heart condition and was 54 like Warrior but always made me laugh.
Am sure there are way more popular public figures the world would want to meet in spirit like Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, JFK, Princess Diana, and many others. Even people alive and well that are known for fame would be a thrill to actually talk or sit with. Could you even fathom a question? I got tongue-tied even talking to Dana Warrior on her podcast but made it through!! There was my Q and A for Warrior post but truly do enjoy just listening to his speeches.
Let’s see if I can come up with a list for him… Well, that’s tough considering how influenced he was by so many but I’ll try. It would definitely be some founding fathers of our country, philosophers, thinkers, authors, presidents, and war heroes. Am thinking specifically Ronald Reagan, Mark Twain, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and perhaps Joseph Campbell whom he mentions as a great influencer. Also, am sure some Native Chiefs would be on his list as many paintings and statues adorned Casa de Warrior over the years.
So, do you have a list warriors? Maybe yours might change over time once people pass on. Maybe it will stay the same since your admiration never wavers. Who knows once we’re in spirit who we will or can meet besides seeing relatives. I believe there is no separation and no egos so why not?
Am sure many of you fans would want to meet Warrior and maybe someday you will or even other favorite passed WWE Superstars. I can only imagine my reaction as yours will be somewhat different. Who would you meet? Enjoy your list and quite possibly those in “Parts Unknown” will honor it. We are all the same in spirit– celebrity or not… ❤️
