Amazing hiccup cure
I almost forgot to tell you this wonderful story: Last week, my friend Kate was in town visiting me, and we were walking back from dinner (with local poet-man J. Michael Martinez), and I had the hiccups. J. Mikes said, Hold your breath. But of course that didn't work. I was hiccupping and hiccupping, and I didn't have any water. (My usual cure is to drink from the opposite side of a glass.) And then Kate turned to me and said, "How about this: I'll give you five dollars if you hiccup again." Not if you don't hiccup again, but if you do. I turned and looked at her in astonishment. And my hiccups were gone.
