My Inability to Properly Wink

Posted by Maureen Tuesday, April 01, 2008

Once, we were waiting in the Nairobi airport for our flight to Malindi (the coast), and Toby took a video of me showing off my unmatched winking skills. For those of you who have never seen this phenomenon, I think I can wink with my right eye, but have an incredible lack of ability to link with my left eye, or come even close. I'm not making any of it up: this footage is for real.

What a cutie. You look so happy. I'm not a winker either, and the people that wink all the time make me a little nervous.

That's too funny. Dave makes fun of me because I can only wink with one eye also... Stinkin' Dave can wink with both!

Okay, so if my memory of our years together serves me correctly...I believe you are also unable to fold your tongue? Yes? No? Hmmmm. Lovely to hear you! Miss you.

You are not alone! I can only wink my right eye; can't even come close with the left.
