Hogwarts Headaches

Reports are hitting the news about kids getting headaches from marathon reading sessions of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Perhaps a Harry Potter line of reading glasses should be in the works? Or maybe just better lighting. Hey kids: Read Harry Potter out on your porch. Get some fresh air, and enjoy the free solar lighting!

LOL - actually, Lens Crafters DOES have a Harry Potter line of glasses. My son *really* wanted to go there for them when he got his new ones last month!

My paltry jokes can't keep up with reality.

I can't think of a better reason to have a headache. I hope more kids read this much!

I frequently stayed up too late as a kid, reading until way after bedtime. I still do the same thing today. Plus ca change!

I don't get headaches, but my eyes get really dry and the next day, I look like I've been on a bender. Well, I have--a reading bender!

That's what Allergan's refresh tears are for.

I use Allergan Refresh Plus eye drops. My optometrist turned me on to these years ago because I get such dry eyes, especially during the change of seasons.

Love love love them!

So perhaps the Harry Potter books should come with little packs of eye drops. Now _there's_ a marketing tie-in no one thought of!
