Taxi Driver

Taxi Driver

Somebody: you see her…she is Happiness…

Me: are you sure?

Somebody: yes I am sure, go talk to her!

Me: I am too shy…

Somebody: if this is your chance for Happiness and you are too shy, than you’ll be unhappy for the rest of your life!

Me: is this a threat?

Somebody: no…but go…go…I can see you and Happiness together…

So I approached her and just stood there like an idiot, and she looked at me and asked…

Happiness: what?

Me: I don’t know…are you Happiness?

Happiness: Yes – I am Happiness!

Me: you think you can make me happy?

Happiness: are you unhappy?

Me: sometimes…

Happiness: why?

Me: Life…

Happiness: ok

Me: can you make me happy forever?

Happiness: boy, are you looking for sex?

Me: no, sex doesn’t last forever!

Happiness: So…what do you want? 

Me: Happiness I want you!

Happiness: now?

Me: whenever you are ready…

Happiness: I am ready!

Me: so…

Happiness: so…you going to stand there forever with your hands in your pockets?

Me: no not at all…

Happiness: kiss me…

Me: ok…and I kissed her and said – Happy Independence Day Happiness!

Happiness: are you happy now?

Me: Yes!

Happiness: it was a sweet kiss!

Me: yes very very sweet! 

Happiness: you look much happier now!

Me: I am much, much happier…is it going to last?

Happiness: what?

Me: Happiness does it stay?

Happiness: sometimes…

Me: that’s good!

Happiness: where do you live?

Me: Rothschild…

Happiness: do you have a car?

Me: I have a cab…

Happiness: are you a Taxi driver?

Me: You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? Well, I’m the only one here. Who the fuck do you think you’re talking to?

Happiness: why are you being so mean to me?

Me: I am not, it’s from a movie…

Happiness: oh…I didn’t know…I only watch happy movies…

Me: that’s good!

Happiness: so are you bringing your Taxi…

Me: Happiness I am no Taxi driver, but I know the number…

Happiness: let’s go!

Me: let’s go!

Happiness: are you sure you live here?

Me: sure, why? 

Happiness: well, the house is empty…

Me: oh…that’s because I have lots of imagination and I don’t like to be distracted by reality…

Happiness: you are one strange man…so are you ready for Happiness?


Happiness: what are you doing?

Me: I am getting ready to be happy!

Happiness: than put your cloths back on…

Me: ok…

And she got into bed with her cloths on, turned off the light and said

Happiness: time to sleep…

Me: good night Happiness…

Rambo: good night man…

Me: good night brown dog…

Happiness: did you just call me brown dog?

Me: no…no…just talking to my dog…

Hppiness: oh…ok…good night Taxi Driver…

Me: good night.

    I think “me” already knows what happiness is and where to find it. In fact “Happiness” in this case isn’t at all tangible in that he can’t touch/physically feel her she is in fact is his very own vivid imagination. He suffers as much as anyone who imagines vividly ~ feeling of insecurity a sweet un-insured feeling of possibly being wrong, not yet truely confident in his wisdom…Perhaps he is afraid that happiness may not concur with him after all she referred to him as a taxi driver even though in an earlier response he noted that he wasn’t.
    In my opinion happiness (for “me”) just may be with-in the brown dog…

    Yes brown dog is my happiness – he is one big heart and shows me unconditional love that lasts forever.

    I know that happiness is coming, I just need to be a gentelman and open the door…
