"Wet describes a state of something that is not normally wet."

IIRC from nearly sixty years ago - the "wetness" of water is what causes it to have a U shaped meniscus in a glass tube. It is attracted to the surfaces. Whereas mercury or alcohol are not attracted to the surface - and have an inverted U shape meniscus.
