1) The one who spoke fluent Russian and, when we traveled for work, used to negotiate with waitresses extensively to make sure I got my eggs the way I liked them.
2) The one who cared so much about our programs that she’d start swearing and waving her arms in the middle of meetings.
3) The one who would yell at me when he got stressed, but always grinned if I yelled back.
4) The one who was technically my subordinate but acted like my boss because he ran a really important country program. Why was he loved, you ask? Because he ran his really important country program really really well.
