Those of you who know me as a fashion icon may be surprised to learn that my pajama top and bottoms do not match. I don't remember how this started, but it has become my signature evening attire. Come over for dinner one night and you'll see. I'll share some Fiber One with you!
There are many fun facts that you probably don't know about me. Here are just a few:
- In the early 1980s, when the CIA recruited personnel via large display ads in the New York Times, I scored an interview for a job as a spy . My interviewer (whose real name I never learned) and I met in a midtown hotel, but we soon both decided that spy-dom was not my calling. This realization came about after the standard questions about teamwork and personal hobbies, when he asked me how much I would enjoy hanging around seedy European train stations in the middle of night waiting for someone to pass me a note. In fact, I prefer cruises to train travel. (By the way, this is a true story).
- I am 52 years old and I can still stand on my head. I don't do this very often, as I am hoping to live till at least 53.
- As a baby, I was kidnapped by gypsies and raised by wolves. Like all market researchers.
- While I may be a righty, I have always bounced a ball with my left hand. This came in very handy during my brief, but highly successful professional basketball career.
Now that you know all of this, I may have to kill you. I might have recused myself from the CIA job, but not before learning a thing or two.
