This week’s Weekly Question of the Week is about winking.
Yes, the wink. The micro-second flirter, the conspirer, the communicator of inside knowledge, the facial tic that gets mistaken for sexual harassment.
Also something that is hilarious when people lack the musculature to do it. Like when little kids wink, and their entire face collapses in on itself for an instant? Fantastic.
A wink can give a normal conversation a little extra dash of zeal. And why? Who knows. It just works… at least… when it’s done right. A bad, or poorly timed or excessive wink can make your entire world disturbing. Consider the following innocuous statements made disturbing by the addition of a wink:
“If that’ll be everything, I’ll just cash you out. I’ll be right back with your credit card.” *wink*
“I trust the hotel room met your needs.” *wink*
“Obviously, I would never ask you to perjure yourself.” *wink*
“Oh, you’ve never seen a human skull? Well, maybe someday you’ll get your chance.” *wink*
And the list goes on and on. Or at least hopefully it will, with your help on this week’s Weekly Question of the Week: What otherwise harmless statement becomes disturbing with the addition of a wink?
