Jamie Stanco

October 16 is National Boss’ Day, and it also happens to be National Dictionary Day.

So, in honor of Jamie Stanco, our boss and the founder of PMG (…and our resident logophile), here are some of his favorite words and their definitions so you don’t need to look them up in the dictionary…
