First Faustus posts this link on his blog, then last night I'm walking up 6th Avenue, near Radio City Music Hall, where throngs of tourists have just left the Christmas Spectacular, and I overhear a family -- middle-aged father and mother, early teenage daughter -- of obvious out-of-towners discussing and debating the meaning of the word metrosexual. They were all familiar with the term but the mother wasn't quite sure what it meant, and the father kind of got it wrong. The daughter, clearly exasperated but not the least bit embarrassed, started to set them, um, straight.
Then other noises on the street drowned them out, and the next thing I heard was the daughter, now sounding completely horrified, say: "No, Dad, you are not a metrosexual. Jeez!"
That's when I ran.
On an administrative note, I'm now quite happy with the state of my template. I still value your feedback, but you can ignore the "It's not 100%" caveat in yesterday's post.
