Manscaping metrosexuals among us, even in Canada

It wasn't the kind of vocabulary I've come to expect from Met this late in the game.
"Did you read this story in Time magazine about men getting waxed, Scottaa1?"
****"Not whacked Scottaa1. Waxed."
I put down my half-banana on whole-wheat toast. "Hair removal? The bikini line?"
"Not the bikini line. Their eyebrows."
Met checked the story. "It only mentions Americans."
"There you go. We're not Americans, . I keep telling you that. We're very different up here. It's not just the beer and the hockey."
"There are metrosexuals in Canada, too, Scottaa1."
I put down the toast again: I didn't even know Met knew about metrosexuals.
"We even have one in the family."
"Whoa, hon. Quig men don't wax."
"Are you sure you know what a metrosexual is?" Met asked.
"Of course I do. I'm a reporter. It's a male who's in touch with his feminine side. A guy who cares deeply about things like colour co-ordination . . . and rubs himself with a loofa to get rid of dead skin. Makes him look younger. And they're not gay, either." "Not quite" Met said but some are in the closet.
Wait a minute Met...You are a Metrosexual aren't you?
"Huh" Met said.
"You look gay."
"You dress gay."
"and you even post Gay"
That means you are.... http://www2.canada.com/calgary/calgaryh ... e49a00a97b
