Do you ever get the hiccups? Every once in a while I do. If I have them once during a day-I always have them again before the day is over. My record-is 5 different times in one day.
We've all heard drinking water is the remedy to stop hiccups-or holding your breath. According to John Parris saying this tongue twister will cure them:
Hickup, snicup, rise up, right up! Three drops in the cup are good for the hiccup.
Back in the day-I got the hiccups when I was on a date. The fellow told me if I'd swallow a spoonful of sugar it would cure them. He stopped at Grizzle Bears and got me a packet of sugar from the resturaunt in the back of the store-but the sugar didn't cure my hiccups.
If I'm in public-I try telling myself "you will not hiccup again you will not hiccup again!!!" but that usually doesn't work either. I found this page full of hiccup cures-my favorite of which is "scream as loud and as long as you can" wonder what would happen if I tried that one at work?
How about you-got hiccup cures?
