Hi All,

My son was pulling funny faces last night and I asked him what he was doing. He replied 'Trying to raise an eyebrow' (like his older brother can). He then said 'Can you blink with one eye?' so I said 'You mean wink?'.

It got me thinking (brain tired now!), most of us use 'Winks' in emails, texts or forum posts, but how many of us (apart from the ferocious AR) physically 'Wink' these days? Can't say I ever do or ever have done so why is it so popular in the written format?

It reminded me of a poem I used to know ....

A blink, I think, is the same as a wink,
A blink is a wink that grew,
For a wink you wink with only one eye,
And a blink you wink with two!

(I think I need a holiday laugh.gif wink.gif )

I find it creepy if a guy winks at me and I am sure many a man has been hit with a handbag for doing so !!

You've got to judge the situation to see if it is ok.

Danyl Johnson winked at Cheryl Cole during his first X Factor audition and she visibly went all mushy!

Yes, but they are on TV; that doesn't count. If I was famous and I winked at you you'll be probably sending me love letters. wink.gif

This is the wink I hate the most when they do the pointed fingers with each hand and make the noise TK TK
