Hogwarts headache

Carnival weekend.

Surely theses days many children around the world will be dressing up Harry Potter.

And speaking of Harry Potter, did you know that there is a headache with his name?

Well, to be exact, is called Hogwarts Headache.
A generalized headache from spending many hours reading an unusually long volume such as one of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books. The pain resolves one to two days after the patient finishes the book. The term was coined by Dr. Howard J. Bennett in a Letter to the Editor of The New England Journal of Medicine on October 30, 2003. Dr. Bennett's letter was entitled "Hogwarts Headaches - Misery for Muggles." Hogwarts refers to Harry's alma mater -- Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Curious, indeed.

As a lover of reading, I refuse to believe that reading can generate a headache... at least no more than watch TV, work on the computer, etc., etc.

So, please, do not fail to enjoy reading... and of course, enjoy that weekend of madness and debauchery carnival, jajaja...

A present for you:

Counting Crows – Mrs. Potter's Lullaby
