If you could bring life to one inanimate object for 24 hours, what would it be and what would you ask it?
Oh wow, that is a hard question, because there are so many choices! Probably something Bast-related from ancient Egypt, because there's so much we don't know about their culture that I could learn! I'd have to hire a stenographer or three, I think. :) Or possibly a mummy; they're inanimate now, so that counts, right? :) I'd pick someone from the middle class, if I could, because they would have had enough money to be mummified, but also would know what their society and culture were like from more of an everyday perspective, versus the royals, who wouldn't have the same perspective. Plus I think a royal who considered themselves on par with the gods would be kind of a pain in the neck to deal with! :D
