The best cure for hiccups

  Put a knife in a glass of water, drink the water with the knife still in it. Cured.

So last week, I had the hiccups. They came out of nowhere and got annoying really fast. My friend Amber (remember Amber, holding her toddler like a bag of groceries? My previous post) started laughing at my predicament. Well, it was pretty funny.

Her husband Jon, a wonderful occupational therapist, said, “I have the best cure for hiccups.” He put an ordinary dinner knife in a glass of water and said, “Now drink the water.”

“With the knife still in the glass?” It made me a little nervous.

“Yes.”

I drank but said to myself this is so not going to work.

20 seconds later: Hiccups GONE.

I don’t know how it worked. But it worked.

Have any of you tried this? Do you have other cures? Let me know what you do to cure your hiccups. Amaze!
