Don’t blink. Whatever you do, don’t blink.

Boise Ed sent in this bit of synchronicity, noting “And they’re adjacent in my alphabetically sorted list of comics.”

    My eye twitches like that woman in the first comic from time to time. Should I be worried about this? I figured I’d ask you folks rather than a medical professional, as you seem knowledgeable and you’re much more affordable.

    When it happens, try eating a banana, or otherwise ingesting potassium and/or magnesium. I’ve been told lack of these electrolytes causes twitching. Let me know how it works out. Then I’ll send you my bill.

    I thought that that line in Pickles would make her eye stop twitching.

    Bananas are good for cramps. If it’s your eyelid that’s twitching, it’s probably something known as “venous flutter”. Basically, a bit of turbulence has set in in one of the small veins making it wobble. An eyelid is light enough that it can be affected by this. Not much you can about except wait for the turbulence to die down.

    All that is one of the few thing I remember from my bioengineering degree.

    Stan, I find mine does the same when I’m feeling extra stressed. When the stress goes away, so, usually, does the twitching. DemetriosX, thanks for the explanation!

    In Pickles her eye “twitches” - actually blinking per the strip - for a couple of days. Her grandson then reminds her of when grandpa left his car blinker on until she told him to shut if off and perhaps someone needs to tell her eye to shut off - he does and it stops.

    Has there ever been even one instance of “Real Life Adventures” in which the art was necessary?

    IIRC, B-vitamin deficiency, I forget which one, can also promote muscle twitches, and that’s a bit more serious. Seek reliable information first (once you’re looking for a specific thing there’s a fair amount of medical information to be found posted on reputable sites) but consider a roast beef sandwich.
