He's the only man who can
make a pink scarf look manly.
When he tucks a handkerchief in his breast
pocket it says, "thank you."
As he walks into his closet, his wardrobe
screams, "we are not worthy!"
He's been blessed with so many talents,
there is a sign on his back
that reads, "Standing room only."
picture in the dictionary falls under "Jack of All Trades".
Webster's has updated it to read: "master of them all."
Siafa Lewis is not the most
interesting man in the world, but he was
the most versatile and
fascinating one in local television.
But life happens and things change. Lewis was laid off from his job with NBC nearly
10 months ago. He has a beautiful wife and two gorgeous kids, payments to make,
and suddenly, he's out of a job. That's just life in television where people come and our
let go as if they are just meat on the hoof, like NFL players. Executives are ruthless,
co-workers even harsher. It's a dog-eat-dog world and Lewis knew that going in.
As of Wednesday, Lewis is out of that world, and perhaps, for good. He landed a job
with ISAIA, a high-end clothing company. This is a match made in heaven, a better than
perfect fit. A clothing horse selling the type of clothes that intoxicates him. This, of course,
means that Lewis will no longer be spending 23 and-a-half hours of the day on Facebook
giving us him opinions about the Phillies, Eagles, and Obama.
Lewis will be like a kid in a candy store at ISAIA. I just hope that Lewis, as an
account executive, realizes his job is to sell the clothing instead of perusing it and
taking advantage of his 50 percent discount to purchase half the inventory.
If you're a friend of Siafa, you can't help but feel a sense of joy for him. He is a great
man, husband, and father. He is very real. I'm extremely happy that he has found a
career that he can be just as passionate about as his last one. What doesn't kill you,
makes you stronger, right Siafa?
And remember, you can't spell ISAIA without Siafa. Best of luck, buddy.
