So I'm an adult. Right age and everything. Still, I love cartoons. So much that I drag my kids to the movies under the farce that it's really for them. ;)
One thing I wonderifically admire are the 'blink, blink' moments. You know, that look you're giving me right now. When one person says something and the other person has no good response for any number of
Take Winnie-the-Pooh and Rabbit. In one episode, Rabbit asks: "Pooh, don't you know what a referee does?"
And Pooh stares back, and you hear "blink, blink," as he blinks twice. Without saying a word, we KNOW. Pooh has no idea. Zero.
It's brilliant, I tell you, brilliant!
So I've started doing this to my husband (and a select few others who appreciate the nuanced humor). ;) Here's how it works. Let's say your best friend Eddie holds out his finger to you and says, "Wow! Look at
the size of that booger!"
What do you say? You're kind of speechless. Right?
Just hold up both hands, open and shut your fingers, and say: "Blink. Blink." And now, with no words, you have conveyed your disgust and/or speechlessness without ever having to say to Eddie: "What a disgusting
behavior! You don't have the manners of a cow, and I am udderly . . . I mean utterly . . . speechless by what you've just done!"
So go on, go out there and spread the blinks! And in the mean time, have a blink, blink moment you care to share?
