A man walked out to the street and hailed a taxi going by. He got into the taxi, and the cabbie said, "Perfect timing. In fact, you're just like Brian Sullivan"

Passenger: "Who?"

Cabbie: "Brian Sullivan. He's a guy who did no wrong... always in the right place at the right time. Things go perfectly like that to Brian Sullivan, every day every time."

Passenger: "Every person has problems. There are always a few clouds over everybody."

Cabbie: "Not Brian Sullivan. He was a terrific athlete... He could have played Tennis at the Grand Slam ... He could golf with the pros... sang like an opera baritone ... danced like a Broadway star and you should have heard him play the piano. He was an amazing guy."

Passenger: "That's amazing. Sounds like he was something really special."

Cabbie: "There's more. He had a memory like a computer... He remembered everybody's birthday... He knew all about wine... which foods to order ... and which fork to eat them with... and he could fix anything. Not like me. I change a fuse, and the whole street blacks out. But Brian Sullivan, he could do everything right."

Passenger: "Wow. Some guy then."

Cabbie: "He always knew the quickest way to go in traffic and avoid traffic jams. Not like me, I always seem to get stuck in them. But Brian, he never made a mistake, and he really knew how to treat a woman and make her feel good. He would never answer her back even if she was in the wrong; and his clothing was always immaculate, shoes highly polished too. He was the perfect man! He never made a mistake.
No one could ever measure up to Brian Sullivan."

Passenger: "An amazing fellow. How did you meet him?"

Cabbie: " I've never actually met Brian. He died................. I'm married to his widow."
