People don’t wink much anymore do they? There are certain days I feel like I go around winking at everybody (not every day or even most), at men and women alike. Winking is flirty and conspiratorial. A younger man winked at me last week. It wasn’t lascivious, but charming actually in its context, and even though I was kind of surprised I took it as friendly/flirty/harmless. It occurs to me that, similar to raising an eyebrow, winking might not be a gesture everyone can physically do. Moreover, I’m sure plenty of people are not comfortable doing it – I’m having trouble even thinking up people I know who DO wink.
