Imagine sitting on the bench pictured in this post. Now imagine, being able to choose to sit on this bench and talk to just one person for the whole day, who would that person be? The person can be anyone you choose, alive or dead, real or imagined, from the past, present, or future. What would you talk about? Would you ask questions? Tell the person your aspirations? Dreams? Gripes? For me, it will be probably my 13 year-old self... just to check if he will be proud of the choices I've made so far in life. By the way, this post I thought off after reading this post by @Fleura .
Years ago I worked with a Canadian colleague (not that his nationality has anything to do with it really) and one day he told me that he had known his wife was...

For a whole day!? Nobody but me. I cannot see myself talking to another human for a whole day I would be afraid to bore him/her.

@Fleura LOL, I am not sure, I like to listen to people, but after four or five hours it's a bit too much.

Probably not one whole day, but I'd love to have a few hours talking to J.K Rowling. Not a fan of Harry Potter but her life story is so inspirational!

What exactly made JK Rowling's life inspirational for you @cahaya1983 ?

@allen0187 Mainly the struggle she went through to become a writer, how she faced rejection and turned it into a huge success.

I'm not sure. I mean...who is to say if the person is gonna lie to you or not? So would talking to them really do any good? Or are they going to just fill your head full of hopes and dreams that only shatter like glass? Yep...life's a bench some days...

I would like it to be Jesus . I could ask Him many questions about my life and how am i doing for him , at this point of my life . And i know , i also would shed a lot of tears during the course of the recollection of my life .

Wow! I've always wanted to have someone with whom I could talk like this.. Haven't yet met such a special person. In fact I love to talk to myself sitting alone. I imagine myself having achieved what I wanted to and telling about it to other people! When I am upset or have done some mistake, I sit alone and advise myself.

Talking for a whole day would bore me to say nothing of others.

Definitely would be my late son, Ricky. I would talk about all that he missed. His little niece, Riki, named after him. How my mom beat cancer, oh just about everything!
