Arman & vintage Armani

Here’s a funny story for your Monday moods:

A man walks into the NY street and manages to get a taxi just going by.

He gets into the taxi, and the cabbie says, “Perfect timing. You’re just like Arman.”


Cabbie: “George Arman. He’s a guy who did everything right all the time. Like my coming along when you needed a cab, things happened like that to George Arman every single time.”

Passenger: “There are always a few clouds over everybody.”

Cabbie: “Not George Arman. He was a terrific athlete. He could have won the Grand-Slam at tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang like an opera baritone and danced like a Broadway star and you should have heard him play the piano. He was an amazing guy.”

Passenger: “Sounds like he was something really special.

Cabbie: “There’s more… He had a memory like a computer. Could remember everybody’s birthday. He knew all about entertaining, which foods to order and which fork to eat them with. He could fix anything. Not like me. I change a fuse, and the whole street blacks out. But George Arman, 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 Arman, 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 George Arman.”

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

Cabbie: “Well, I never actually met Arman…I just married his damn widow.”


I never met Arman either, but I wore a vintage Armani for a date night with my boyfriend over the weekend.
