No Fanciful Quidditch Moves

Apparently, reading Harry Potter books takes precedence over other dangerous childhood activities, at least during "opening weekend" for each new book.
"The results, published in the Christmas issue of the British Medical Journal, showed that 67 children were injured on average each weekend but the number fell by 30 per cent to 36 and 37 in the two weekends when the Harry Potter books were launched."
I can't say I'm surprised. The two adults here in the Phouka household remain locked behind closed doors and eat takeout food the weekends the books come out, too.
