shut and open one eye quickly (usually as a sign of friendship,amusement,etc. to sb)
(with reference to light) appear to go on and off quickly
act of shutting one's eye in this way
very short period
"if I had the chance I'd do it in a flash"
"She winked at him"
"The lights were flashing"
"The TV announcer never seems to blink"
"blink away tears"
Every night I woke up at seven o'clock and never got a wink afterwards.
