I was taking a taxi the other day and the cab driver was telling me everything about his life from his Opera singing career to how his name is still spoken in the Pentagon. He even sang for me.
“Oh, the people around here just love me! Whenever there is an event in this town involving music, I am the first person they call.

You know the one I mean?” I, squeezed in a quick, “Yes, I know that building.”
His monologue went on for several minutes when finally, he took a breath and said, “I just realised I have been doing all the talking! Enough about me, let’s talk about you. What do you think about my building up the street?”
