a hello here, a blink there..

A funny sort of greeting method is seen going around amongst the hostel residents. Whenever you want to show a somewhat greater affection than just a vocal 'hi' and a smile, you "blink" your eyes.

a blink = both-eyed wink. :D

Maybe it's followed when one' s too lazy to lift up a hand and wave, or nod the head.
I for sure picked it up from our third-year seniors (and now I observe my grand-daughters following the same tradition!) I remember Dots and Consul as its most prominent pioneers. The way a mischievous smile would break out after they had 'blunked' their already twinkling was fun!
