He is inquisitive.
Today is Halloween in the US! Maybe it’s time for a little virtual ghoulish dismemberment. Or not.
Il n’a pas ses yeux dans sa poche means, literally, He doesn’t have his eyes in his pocket. If his eyes were in his pocket, he couldn’t see anything (not to mention that they might bang around against each other, like marbles).
But the whole point is that he is so inquisitive, he wants to see everything. I can picture his eyeballs escaping, bouncing around madly, trying not to miss a thing. Creepy! Do they have a mind of their own? Wait till you hear what else might be on the loose!
