Winkie

Last Sunday, as I was riding up with my husband to my parents house to move the Great White Whale I was completely blinded by the sun. I didn't want to ride with my eyes closed the whole way and I can only control my left eye for winking. So I decided to learn to wink with my "off" eye. I set out isolating which muscles were doing the work and trying to replicate it on the other side of my face. I spent half the ride practicing my new wink.

It occurred to me that this was a very adult way of learning to wink. I can't remember how I learned this skill, neither can my husband (I asked). In fact, in thinking about it, it seems rather odd that I am right handed but wink with the left. Shouldn't dominance in muscle control be consistent? So, a poll!
