Gnawhide

Created by: rombus

Pronunciation: naw - hide

Sentence: Rusty was gaining quite a reputation. His coworkers secretly called him "ol' gnawhide" as they had caught him at his desk, in the supply closet, in the washroom and even in the stairwell, eating ribs, chicken and turkey legs before luncheon/meetings with the Board of Directors. Because he wanted to maintain the carefully crafted personna of "health nut", representing that he only ate fruit, berries and nuts, he found it necessary to cater to his inner-carnivore when he knew that he would not have access to his favorites for the rest of the day.
