I had a flat tire the other day. I took it to the tire store to have it repaired and put back on my car. I tried to pay, but the manager told me it was no charge. When I thanked him he said, “No problem,” with a wink.
I didn’t really think about it again until I watched “Body of Lies” this weekend. This clip in particular…
(Well, the video is tiny and it's hard to tell it's a wink - looks like a blink. But trust me, it's cool)
I think “the wink” is usually thought of as corny or creepy. But in both these scenarios, it was kind of cool.
I don’t know how to wink. Not that I’m really the type of person who’d be a winker, but still, if I wanted to be, I couldn’t. I’ve tried a couple of times this weekend, but all that happens is one side of my face scrunches up. Maybe it takes practice.
Do you know how to wink? Are you a winker?
