Why is water wet?

‘Wet’ is just a word that we apply to the description of our experience of water. Water, by itself, is not wet, because it is a liquid, but whatever it touches, it can make that wet. When something feels ‘wet’, it is because that water on evaporating makes the surface of the object cold. Therefore, we or the object feels wet. A more relatable and less impinging sense of water is that it is either ‘cold’ or ‘warm’. The wetness is due to its high moisture-content. Also, water is wet because it is a viscous liquid with a fairly low surface tension.
