Frenchie Frowny Face

Statue at Napoleon Museum
Rio (pointing at this statue at the Napoleon Museum in Rome): Who does this look like?
Me: A Frenchie! It’s a Frenchie frowny face.
Rio: Yup.

I think most expats would recognize this “look” immediately as well. Frenchies have a tendency to contort their face to a frown while simultaneously making a “pfff” sound. Sometimes for emphasis, they’ll also slightly tilt their head forward while doing so. Think I’m exaggerating? Come live here and you’ll see. I’ve, unfortunately, started doing it a bit myself – it’s like some nervous tic!
