“Aeration is part of the French esthetic, another aspect of taking good care of oneself.”
One thing the French seem to do better than Americans is simply including more movement in their day-to-day life. The government gets in on the act, too. Along with messages about teaching your children not to snack between meals, the word “Bouger!” (Move!) is periodically flashed on the bottom of the television screen. It would seem that the French, as a culture, take health seriously and aren’t offended by government efforts to encourage healthy eating and exercise. If only that were true in America.
