Fool-Proof Cure

For the Hiccups that is!

That kid thinks hiccups are hilarious! I guess he's right, but not for very long and not if you're the one who has them. I got them this morning for the first time in quite a while and thought I ought to share with you the cure that has worked for me every single time since my grandmother taught it to me. I swear it's better than drinking water, holding your breath, tugging on your ears, or scaring them out (although that did work for me once). Here's what you do: take a spoon and fill it about halfway with regular sugar. On top of that pour a little bit of apple cider vinegar. Eat that spoonful but make it take 3 little sips. You'll probably burp after that, but the hiccups will be gone.
I showed this to Brian once when he had the hiccups and it worked just like I said it would, but he hates vinegar so much he'd rather suffer through them than take the medicine. To each his own, I'd rather get it over with! Let me know if you try it some time.
