@UncleVinny I clicked the “something else” option and came here to comment that a ghost is better than all the proposed things because there’s a lot of questions a ghost could answer, like are there ghost books?
Then I saw your answer and thought a cookie monster is better than a ghost.
But then I remembered a cookie monster doesn’t make or bring cookies, just eats them and makes a mess, so I stand by my ghost. Or around it.
A skeleton is also better than all the proposed things, because skeletons are always happy and do a dance.
Also I have both a skeleton and a ghost inside me right now, but no mummies, zombies etc. So it’d be easy to carpool with them to the book club.
@UncleVinny I mean, you wouldn’t invite one of the scary ones, right? There are terrible non-monster people too, and I also wouldn’t want to share a book club with one of those.
I suppose it depends on the rules of the question, is it like a monkey paw where you say you want a ghost and you get stuck with the worst possible ghost, or is it like actually inviting a thing to a book club, where you’d only invite the ones you’d actually want to hang out with.
I went with vampires because most of them are pretty old and probably have had plenty of time to read and form opinions and the like and they will have a lot of things to say about the books we read in the club so I’ll be able to mostly just keep my mouth shut and maybe nap.
@lilsrm123 - In the book, Frankenstein’s monster read Milton’s Paradise Lost an wouldn’t shut up about it. The problem is that he was a whiner who was always complaining and obsessed with his appearance.
@lilsrm123 yeah but a vampire would probably say really pretentious things and showing off how much he knows like “You thought Carver/Lish was a controversy? You should have seen Shakespeare’s editor!”
Okay everyone said vampire because they’re hot but the obvious choice is mummy because even though they’re monsters they are also people from ancient Egypt, meaning I think they would have a lot of really insightful things to say at book club! They could give us a first-hand look at ancient history!
