From the desk of the boss:

Jason – Your offer could not have come at a more critical life junction for me. I am well and thank you deeply for asking. If you believe I am having a great day, then I will try to and muster equal faith to believe as well.

Just to clarify, is it a test or a form? Your response was unclear. Oh wait, is that the test…? HAVE I ALREADY FAILED?!

Sorry about that. Tests make me nervous. In response to your questions:

Full Names : Alfonso Robeiro AKA Jeremy Finch AKA  Starfish Jones AKA The Rhombus
Address with zip code: 27 paces past The Thicket, east of the tracks
City: Norfolk
Age : TBD
Phone # : 713-877-6757 (Fax only)
Gender : Current, or past? TBD
Present Job : Entrepreneur (A few gigs away from sustainable magic act)

In answer to your earlier questions:

1. Yes I have, if by “warehouse” you mean “Starbucks in an airport.”

2. I once wrote a book report on The Hungry Caterpillar, so, yes.

3. Yes and yes. In fact, 1:30 hours is my optimal time for effectiveness in errands.

Not only am I qualified, but I share your unique passion for a combo electronics/clothing store. In fact, I actually own several patents for electronic clothing. Picture this – you love to play keyboard, but hate lugging your Casio around, right? Fret no more – the keyboard shirt is your solution! It’s been a big hit within my family, and I have several other prototypes in the works (Dulcimer Pants, Woodwind Beret, Mandolin Chaps, etc.).

Additionally, I have access to a computer, but won’t be able to send any communications after 9PM because that’s when the Apple store near my house closes.

As far as prepaying me in advance goes, could you just wire that directly to my overseas account? The only reason I ask is because I am actually of royal descent, but have been stranded here in the states for some time after a silly visa mix up. I assure you that, once I receive your funds and return home, I’ll pay you back 10X. All I need at this stage is your bank routing and account number, and we’ll be in business.

I have been to Scotland before and understand their primitive lifestyle isn’t conducive for interviews, so we can commune via email.

I await your prompt reply.
