    how to blink

    Hi,

    Could anyone please tell me what "as if he didn'et know how to blink" means?



    The visitor that day was a tall thin man of about thirty with thick stubble on his hollow cheeks. He had a husky voice, and at first he bowed his head, but then he stared back at Rinjiro ominously through narrowed eyes, as if he didn’t know how to blink.


    Thank you

    Re: how to blink

    The fact that he stared without blinking gave the impression that he lacked the ability to blink.

    See above.
