What is going on? When did it become acceptable, for French men, to read Cosmo and the likes in full view of everybody? I must have missed something. How come nobody told me?
I decided to observe French men a bit more carefully. Most of them managed to pullout the 'freshly-out-of-bed-forgot-to-shave' look despite the fact that it was the middle of the afternoon. Nice. It must have taken them some time to get ready.
Then it dawned on me: maybe, over the last ten years, French men have become metrosexual. It was making complete sense: most were wearing pastel colours, and at the local pharmacy, a guy was buying a day cream specifically designed for men. I had never seen one doing this before.
On my way back home, I saw a guy carrying a 'Elle' magazine. It is official. French men have become metrosexual.
