As I've gotten older it seems either my eyes are more sensitive to chopped onions, or they're making onions stronger. I used to use an old scuba mask to keep my eyes from burning. When my daughter bought herself a pair of Quidditch goggles as part of costume for a Steam Punk party, we started using them instead.

Advantage number two of having my daughter back at home is the return of the Harry Potter Quidditch Goggles! They're really quite handy, and if you don't have an old scuba mask lying around, they're easy to pick up at Amazon.
