  8. 8. Good morning Elizabeth, The first thing to know about me is that I’m a swimmer. I’d like to pinpoint two specific things that translate well from the water to the workplace: First, I’m disciplined. Getting up at 5 am every day, whether it’s snowing or dark or raining, is a commitment I’ve sustained since I was seven. In other words, if I tell you I’ll do something, you can bank on it getting done — no follow-ups necessary. Second, I’m detail-minded. In a sport where the difference between first and second place is a fingertip, I bring precision and focus to my job. Jonathan Rick
  9. 9. Dear Sir: I like words. I like fat buttery words, such as ooze, turpitude, glutinous, toady. I like solemn, angular, creaky words, such as straitlaced, cantankerous, pecunious, valedictory. I like spurious, black-is-white words, such as mortician, liquidate, tonsorial, demimonde. I like suave “V” words, such as Svengali, svelte, bravura, verve. I like crunchy, brittle, crackly words, such as splinter, grapple, jostle, crusty. I like sullen, crabbed, scowling words, such as skulk, glower, scabby, churl. Robert Pirosh, Page 1
  10. 10. I like Oh-Heavens, my-gracious, land’s-sake words, such as tricksy, tucker, genteel, horrid. I like elegant, flowery words, such as estivate, peregrinate, elysium, halcyon. I like wormy, squirmy, mealy words, such as crawl, blubber, squeal, drip. I like sniggly, chuckling words, such as cowlick, gurgle, bubble, and burp. I like the word screenwriter better than copywriter, so I decided to quit my job in a New York advertising agency and try my luck in Hollywood, but before taking the plunge I went to Europe for a year of study, contemplation and horsing around. I have just returned and I still like words. May I have a few with you? — Robert Pirosh Robert Pirosh, Page 2
