Be Don Draper (ou pas)

Il est créa dans une agence de publicité new yorkaise, il a un succès incontestable auprès des femmes, il a une femme magnifique, il collectionne les maîtresses, il vit dans les années 50...Oui, vous l'avez peut-être deviné, il s'agit du fameux personnage de la (géniale) série Mad Men, Donald Draper. Le dit-personnage apparaît comme un homme typique des fifties intègre et chevaleresque, mais avant tout un homme très mystérieux, qui ment à tout le monde et sur tout, collectionne les aventures, en y mettant fin (ou pas) quand ça l'arrange.

Et pourtant, entre nous, on l'adore toutes !
Mon Charmant me le dit depuis longtemps, les filles aiment les mufles...Et force est de constater, que oui, un peu...

Si vous souhaitez des conseils personnalisés, allez faire un petit tour sur le site What would Don Draper do ? qui distribue de (plus ou moins) bons conseils pour devenir le parfait mâle des fifties.

Quelques morceaux choisis : 
93. Don't let her leave the house dresses like that.

87. Judge a secretary by her ability to keep things off your desk.

86. Skip out on fireworks with your family to call your girlfriend. Then head home for a glass of milk.

77. Dear Don Draper, I’m a housewife and find my days depressing and empty. My husband is almost no help with the children. Should I leave him or suffer in silence?
By chance, are you almost no help with his job? Emptiness is a good thing. For relief. Find the depressing part(s) of your day. If it’s the time you spend with your husband, then yes, leave him. If it’s the children, leave them. If it’s just the repetition, the routine of homemaking, hire help and get out of the house. Fill those empty parts of your day with something new: a forgotten passion, a release (have you tried a Relaxicisor?) - maybe a gun. Then return to your family and ask yourself if it’s enough. And if not, must you always be full?
68. Start Sunday with a couple Bloody Marys.

51. Dear Don Draper, A girl smiled at me all the way home from work on the bus last night but I’m not sure if it was because I’m handsome or just a better prospect than the old man sitting next to me who smelled of wee. Any ideas?
No. You should never get ideas from some stoned beatnik’s hazy grin. Additionally, you shouldn’t ride the bus. Or sit next to old men who smell of piss. Have you ever seen a lantern-jawed winner on the bus, brimming with false modesty? You haven’t. Just poor people with poor habits.
