If you could meet any historical figure, who and why?
#1: I wonder if there are any famous deceased pastry chefs… I think I would probably go with some food-related person who made something that we don’t know how to make anymore. (What was ambrosia prior to the marshmallow concoction we use now?) I would also probably need a translator with me!
A lot of the historical people I once thought I would want to meet now I have no desire to meet because I’m female and it turns out they were sexually harassing @#$23holes. Far better off dead.
#2: Eleanor of Aquitaine, except we don’t speak the same language
#1: Why? Is it because you share a proud taste for scarlet and miniver? [Note: no ermine or squirrel were harmed in the making of this blogpost]
#2: I dunno, she’s rad as hell, and I couldn’t come up with anyone else. I read lots and lots about her when I was in high school and younger. She seemed… wily.
