A Wink or a Blink?

6E0A117E-A6DC-4D3A-BE65-45CC688607E3“Did you see that?” Sarah asked her bestie, Amanda. “That hunk over there just winked at me.”

“Are you sure it was a wink?” Amanda asked. “Maybe he just blinked.”

“OMG, Amanda,” Sarah said. “Don’t you think I know the difference between a wink and a blink? He was definitely winking at me.”

“How can you be so sure?”

“Because a wink is a deliberate action involving closing only one eye,” Sarah explained. “A blink is when someone closes both eyes very rapidly. It’s something people do naturally every few seconds without thinking about it.”

Amanda looked over at the hunk. She saw him open and close his right eye and then reach up and gently rub it with a finger. “I think you’re wrong, Sarah,” she said. “I think he’s got something in his eye.”

Annoyed with her friend, Sarah marched over to the hunk and asked him directly if he had winked at her or had just blinked. Confused, the hunk, just stared at Sarah.

“Are you flirting with me or do you have something in your eye?” she asked.

“Actually,” he said, “my right contact lens is bothering me. But you are kinda cute.”

Sarah turned around and walked back over to her friend. “He was definitely winking at me,” she said to Amanda, “but he has bad breath so I told him to forget it.”

Written for today’s one-word prompt, “blink.”

    Sarah said, “His breath was so deadly, it could peal the paint off my car.”

    Maybe people should use body language more, and open their mouths less?

      I’m better at understanding words than I am interpreting body language.

        Same, same. Probably all of us, but that might be because we never believe what we hear.

    His breath made her eyes water and of course, blink (uhh) I mean blink. And her nose… well it did a funny crinkle thing too.

    Curious though, would a man with a glass eye blink both eyes or just wink his one good eye? LoL
