If I could choose any celebrity to have lunch with, I would have two answers. The first one would definitely be Kevin Hart. I would choose him because he is one of the funniest comedians and actors of all time. I know the conversations would never get dull and we would have a great time together. He has my kind of humor yet the things he says, never lack to amaze me. His mind is so creative in ways many others could never imagine. It would definitely be an experience that I would never forget. If I were in the mood to learn something during our meal so I could come out smarter, then I would choose Benjamin Franklin. He is one of the greatest inventors of all time yet not many people realize that he must have had many creations that he couldn’t pursue due to his lack of resources. Nowadays, resources are improved and more accessible than they ever were for Benjamin Franklin. I would make sure to ask many questions so I could obtain as much knowledge as possible. After the meal, I would start brainstorming for an invention that would change the world. I have always pictured in my mind that I could change the world in one facet or another. With him, that would be entirely possible. I've always been someone who has wanted to gain knowledge anytime I could. My motto is the more you know, the more you can do.
