The difference between the wink and the blink

Cartoon-so all of a sudden a guy takes my keys...then he hops in my car and drives off!  Was he a valet by chance?  Well, that would explain the ticket.

Today’s cartoon inspired by David Fetterman, who left this in a comment on last Friday’s ethnography blog post. ¬†For those who don’t know David, he’s written a significant book on the subject.

Wonderful posting and drawing of course.

You might add the role of cultural interpretation to the mix. The difference between the wink and the blink. In a smokey bar, a blink might be interpreted as a wink (which could get you more than you bargained for) because context matters in how we interpret behavior.
