The Joy of Winking.

When I first learned how to wink I was still very young although until the auspicious day I finally managed it I had been practicing hard for months. After that first successful wink I went on to practice further. My aim was to learn how to wink and tilt my head sideways at the same time. Being young I mastered this very quickly. Adding the clicking noise by sticking my tongue against my upper palate took a lot more practice but finally, aged seven and three quarters I became an expert at this technique also.

However, it has always been a source of great sadness to me that despite years of trying I can only wink with my left eye. I live in hope that one day I will eventually achieve a right eyed wink. I am getting old. Time is getting short but I will never give up trying. Never.

Tomorrow I shall be talking candidly about disappointment concerning my eyebrows.

Thank you.


  1. My father was a person who winked a lot. So I learned to wink so I could wink back at him. You're right. It was hard to learn but I can wink with either or both eyes.

  2. It's too long ago so I can't remember how I learned to wink. I never feel that I've got it right, though ... what I mean is how should it feel. Looking forward to possibly learning about eyebrows. They say it's never too late to learn.
