because people speak English
1. Decide who you would invite for dinner. This can be anyone. Your guest can be dead, alive, famous, or even fictional (i.e. a character from a book or movie).
2. Decide what you would serve for dinner.
3. Decide who else would be at the table. Would it be a dinner for two, or would you include friends or family members?
4. Write a paragraph explaining why you chose this dinner guest. What would you talk about at the dinner table?
5. Share a link to your post in the comments below.
OPTIONAL: Challenge a MyEC friend to write a short dialogue between you and your dinner guest. This dialogue can be written in the comments of your post.
TIP: You will be using the word "would" in your writing a lot. Review the uses of "would" here.
If I could invite anyone over for dinner, I would invite Anne of Green Gables. I would love to meet Anne in person. She is one of my favourite fictional characters, and I think she would be a fun person to meet.
I don't know what I would feed Anne Shirley. I guess it would depend how old she was when she arrived. It would be fun to meet her at age 10. I would love to see how she interacted with my ten-year-old daughter. My daughter is much more sensible than Anne, but they do have some similarities. They both appreciate good writing and parties. They both talk a lot. I would probably ask a chef to come and cook for us. There's a local chef in my city that I really like. I would ask him to come over to make goat cheese perogies and spinach salad with strawberries and pecans.
I'd get out my mom's special silverware for the occasion. I think Anne would appreciate pretty dinner napkins, too.I would probably invite a few of my daughter's girlfriends to dine with us. I'd tell them to dress up for the occasion.
I would keep my notebook handy to jot down any of Anne's dramatic monologues. I think she would dominate the conversation. Maybe she would tell us tales about PEI.
I would make sure there were lots of fresh flowers in the house. I would ask her to make up names for some of my plants in the garden. I would also ask her to sign my guestbook. (I would need to get a guestbook first.)
It would be a dream come true to have Anne Shirley as a dinner guest. I wouldn't extend the invitation to Marilla Cuthbert, though.
