Daily Prompt: The world is ending tomorrow! Tell us about your last dinner — the food, your dining companions, the setting, the conversation.
For the meal itself, I would have my favorite — a big plate of Italian food. Spaghetti, maybe, or mushroom ravioli. The sauce would be vodka flavored, and there would be Italian sausage and garlic bread with melted cheese. The food would come on big plates with a flower pattern, there would be a table cloth — red and white — and the cloth would cover a long table so everyone could sit around it together. For dessert we would have some kind of pie, maybe with chocolate ice cream.
I would have a gathering of my family and closest friends around the table with me. Along with my one or two closest friends, there would be my parents, my sister, my grandparents, aunts, and uncles. Everyone would be happy and having a good time.
The setting would be in a little cottage in a meadow. Ivy spreads across the cottage’s stone face, and inside everything’s close knit and cozy, with a wood-burning stove. The windows are open, and in the meadow around us a light breeze blows through the grass, the tall tree, the little pond it arches over. Clear skies are overhead, sometimes showing blue and at night the stars.
We all would trade stories and remember good times together. We’d share our favorite things, and there would be no stiff or awkward moments. Everything would be loud and happy.
