It works every time! Seriously!
I got the hiccups today. It served me right for scoffing down a sandwich too quickly. And could have been worse- if I was a horse, I could have gotten choke. Now that is seriously uncomfortable. Just ask any horse you know.
Anyway, after a couple of minutes of entertaining the little ones, I did my fail safe hiccup remedy. Forget breath holding. Forget trying to scare myself. Forget standing on my head. I just pour myself a glass of water, lean over the top of it and drink backwards...or is it upside down?
Have you ever tried it? It has never failed to cure my hiccups but I wonder if it works as well for everyone.
