Who would you?

October 3, 2007

MSN has an ad up today, I’m assuming for the new show “Pushing Daisies.” The question is: If you could bring one person back to life for sixty seconds, who would it be, and what would you ask?

My first thought was Jesus, and “What the hell?”

It would have to be a short question to allow enough time in that sixty seconds for a proper response, don’t you think?



  1. My dad.
    And I wouldn’t ask him anything.
    I would just want to introduce him to my nephew so he could have the chance to meet his first grandchild.
    Oh, and I would hug him so hard.

  2. Back for 60 seconds? Hm. Interesting question!

    I would bring back one of my favorite people from my teen years who died suddenly of an anyeurism. I would ask her what’s on the Other Side.



  3. My first thought was my father – but then I thought, just having sixty seconds with him would be heartbreaking.
    Can’t think of anyone else – sixty seconds just isn’t long enough!

  4. I would take 10 seconds with my dad, no matter how heartbreaking it might seem.

  5. I watched ‘Pushing Daisies’ last evening. I thought it was brilliantly done.
    My person would be my maternal grandmother who was hit and killed by a car when I was 14. I still miss her. She was on her way to mail a letter. I would ask her who the letter was to, and why couldn’t she have waited until it wasn’t a foggy evening.

    Don’t forget to pick up your deserved award at my blog.

  6. AGC ~ In my perfect world I would grant each of these wishes. I don’t think when I zipped this question out this morning that it would be as powerful as it is. But it is. I wish there was a way that I could get that hug for you!

    Hi Beth ~ Your comment reminds me of the play “Our Town,” how if we really could comprehend how powerful it is to be with each other that we’d be completely overwhelmed by it. “Pick a day. Pick an ordinary day.” I am so sorry for your loss.

    Ian ~ I’m glad to hear it. I’d seen the commercials but haven’t watched it. Sounds like I may need to give it a try. I am also saddened for your loss, as well. Loved ones should never be taken from us — of that I am convinced. And thank you again for the award. I must go retrieve it. I’ve been very blessed and humbled lately. Thank you.

  7. My Dad. I’d ask him if in the end, it was all okay, remind him I love him, ask if he needs a glass of ice water.

    Jeez, now I need a tissue and a shot of scotch.

  8. Aw, Pool. I’ll be right over. Hugs to you, my friend. Do you think that they can feel it? Our missing them? Our wanting to hug them? I do. It comforts me.
