Cures for the Hiccups

Saturday, September 20th, 2008

I always forget to tell this to people when they have the hiccups, but this is something that has yet to fail me while battling this evolutionary part of humans.

Many people have different suggestions: holding your breath, blowing in your ear when you're not paying attention, scaring you, and continually drinking water, and the list goes on.

I was told by my late grandmother Canetha Holmes at the age of 5 that if you eat a teaspoon of sugar while having the hiccups they will immediately disappear.... and I must say, she was right.

I had a battle with another set of hiccups tonight which was abruptly ended by eating a teaspoon of sugar... like Granny herself said it would.

Next time you have the hiccups, try it, like I said, it has yet to fail me.

No-longer-hiccuping Tom out.
