Fashionable Winky-Wink

Are you expecting a blog about a high fashioned, well dressed penis accessorized with the latest in cock rings? Sorry to disappoint you; I rarely use euphemisms. Okay, I do say "cock" on occasion, but that's usually when I'm talking dirty. "Dick?" Out of the question...

What's up with everybody? Did I miss out on some fashionable body language newsflash? Everyone is freaking winking!

It started yesterday when I went to dinner with my two best A F F gal-pals. The waiter winked at me when he brought the chips and salsa, then again when my water glass needed a refill. I am not imagining this, because one of my girlfriends said he winked at her when he set her #5 Plato Especial down on the table.

As if that weren't strange enough, the guy at K-Mart winked at me when I asked him what aisle the coffemakers were on. He tilted his head and with a quick wink, barely perceptible said, "Two rows that way." I swear I am NOT imagining this.

At work today, I was winked at just for handing a paper to someone. If you knew the nature of my job, you'd realize just how freakish that is. I got a haircut today and the cute little Vietnamese gal who cut my hair winked at me when I gave her a tip.

I had just arrived home, and sure enough, my son commented, "Cute haircut, mom," and you guessed it...he winked at me.

Of course this was the chance I had been waiting for; someone to ask about all this winking who couldn't possibly think I'm insane.

So, of course I said, "What the fuck is that about?" (Oops.) Before you call child protective services on me, I should state that my son is almost twenty years old and he cusses like a sailor. Even so, he was a bit taken aback by my question. He thought I was referring to his comment on my haircut.

"Really," he said, "I wasn't being sarcastic - it looks nice."

"No," I replied, "not the haircut. That winking...what is that winking about?"

He said, "What winking? I didn't wink."

"Yes, you did...I saw it, you winked."

"Ok, mom, if you say so." Insert eyeroll here.

Damnit. That was sure NOT what I wanted to hear. I want in on the secret! What is this new cult of winkers all about? And, who are they, really? Aliens from a winky planet? Have they brainwashed my own son and he doesn't even realize it? Did they open a new chapter of Winkers Anonymous nearby that I didn't hear about? Or am I just becoming a Winkaphobe?

Jeez. All this thinking about winking and I forgot my backpack in the car. It's a full moon tonight, very pretty. I stared at the moon for just a bit and took a deep breath. I tried it. I winked at the moon. I kidding, the man in the moon, he winked back.

Make someone's day tomorrow. Give 'em a wink for no apparent reason and get onboard with this new trend. Make 'em wonder. Look what happened with "Random Acts of Kindness." It will be a whole new winky-winking trend and you heard it here first. Meds anyone?

That's funny, my father was a winker, (no, not a wanker) and a flirt. He would wink at women when he smiled or if he made a joke, or turned a phrase.

It must have stuck, because I wink and often don't even know that I have. Sheri thinks I have a tick. She may be right, too! I don't remember any ladies ever swooning over my winks, so I can't say that I have had any positive reinforcement of this little quirk.
