So over the past few weeks, Adrián once again decided to grow a beard:
I think it makes him look like a hot professor (which he is). But even though he claims immunity, he too is susceptible to vanity. He doesn't like the white part that insists on erupting on his chin, like the greying muzzle of a weary, faithful dog (which I have, too, and is the whole reason I no longer experiment with facial hair, but at least I admit my motives) and announced a few days ago he planned to shave it off. That's something he didn't do when even he was compared to this man:
But this time, he claimed, his resolve was cold and steely. The reason: he felt his facial adornment is uncomfortably similar to this man's:
Mariano Rajoy is Spain's new prime minister.
Despite his indignation, Adrián never found time to go to the consulate to vote. But when I woke up this morning, his beard was gone.
