If you could resurrect one no longer living person to have lunch with, knowing you will have to return them to the grave right after coffee, who would it be?

Would this be a zombie lunch? Would they smell? Initially I thought Herge, but I don’t speak French or Dutch, so my current obsession is Elizabethan Mage and spy, Dr John Dee. Bring it on.

Leave the tortoise alone.

“my son draws cartoons.”

Coffee or tea?

Lying in a hammock, on a tropical island, reading a great book, sipping from a drink.
