Before I get to Finish The Sentence Friday I have to tell you I’m guest posting over at Jon Acuff’s blog Stuff Christians Like. You need to go check that stuff out first because that’s the big time over there. Like he has 4.5 million readers and I have like…four.
Okay, that’s an exaggeration…
Alright high-fivers, here’s the sentence to finish for this week:
If I could hang out with any celebrity it would be… I could say Jon Acuff, but that would be really cheesy and suck-uppy, since I’m guest posting over there, but you know what? I don’t care. Because the alternative is Ryan Seacrest. And Ryan’s not letting me guest post on his blog, so forget Seacrest.
Jon could bring his wife, Jenny, and kids and I’d bring Steve and my kids and Autumn, my three-year-old, would try to bully them. It’d be so cute. Steve and Jon could sit and talk about Lord of the Ringsfor hours while Jenny and I talk about what moms talk about: our kids.
Then I’d say, “Hey, you know Donald Miller, right? Invite him to join us.” (He’s also one of my favorite authors). So Don would ride his bike over and I’d say, “Hey, let’s go out to eat.” (Because if I cooked it’d be something like salmon patties and kale chips.) “How about California Pizza Kitchen?” And everybody would say, “YES!” because they have THE best roasted veggie salad in the world (trust me, I’ve tweeted about it).
Then I’d say, “You know what? We’re missing Dave Ramsey.” He’s the financial dude and he knows all about saving money, so he could probably teach us how to get out of debt over salad and pizza and then treat us.
Don would talk about how we’re living our stories as we dine and I’d feel all inspired and accepted and stuff. Then Jon would talk about going for our dreams and I’d get all weepy again, but this time not at Chuck E. Cheese.
Then I’d talk about naked Barbie dolls and Steve’s make-out tape and how I was almost famous that one time and we’d all laugh and laugh. And then they’d say how they really need to get me in touch with their agents so I can get a book deal.
After dinner, we’d go to Cold Stone Creamery and I’d get my own Love-It size creation. Then we’d come back to my house and play Wits & Wagers. And I’d win. Wait, did I say my house? No. Because then I’d have to clean it. Scratch that. We’ll just have to go to a bounce house or something and run around like our kids in our socks.
Then I’d start to feel really bad about blowing off Ryan because he’s so nice and all and I’d call him and say, “Hey, why don’t you come join us for the bounce house?” and he’d be totally honored and would fly right over in his private jet.
Yeah, that’s pretty much how it would go down.
If you could hang out with any celebrity who would it be? Tell us in the comments.
