I can’t wink.
Is that normal?
I mean, yes, I can do the physical action of shutting one eye and keeping the other open, but I can’t really wink.
Some people look so cool when they wink. Some people can pull out one of those reassuring winks whenever they want. Or a secretive wink. Or a conspiratorial wink. And they do it effortlessly.
But when I wink?
I look weird. My face is kind of scrunchy and my “wink” doesn’t quite have the proper effect.
I feel like I’m missing out on some really cool skill set. This is how I felt before I could do fish lips or raise only one eyebrow and I’ve mastered those now. But a wink is more than just making the muscles do what I want. It’s mastering the cool.
I think I’m too much of a goof to make the wink work for me.
I’ll have to just stick to reassuring fish lips.
Those reassure people, right?
