There are lots of cures out there that are supposed to alleviate the ridiculous burden of having hiccups.
Swallow a spoonful of sugar or honey.
Stand on your head and drink water.
Control your breathing- swallow air or breath in a figure 8.
One friend insists that telling someone to "Hiccup right NOW!" is a cure.
None of those have ever worked for me.
Then there is that whole "have someone scare you" thing.
Many have tried but it's never worked.
Apparently the scare just wasn't big enough.
Sunday morning, I was getting dressed and a huge case of hiccups hit. Jeff was being lazy in bed, not wanting to really start the day yet. My hiccups were interrupting the flow of conversation and creating quite the bit of entertainment as I got myself ready for the day.
I sat on the bed.
Suddenly, Jeff sat up, grabbed me, and yelled.
I almost wet the bed.
But my hiccups were, in fact, gone.
But I think next time... I'd prefer to just deal with the hiccups.
