I have had the hiccups approximately 15 times today. They last about 20 minutes per session, and they are an awkward hiccup/painful burp combo. My rib cage is sore from an exhausting day of hiccuping. It happens during very inopportune moments, such as during church and while answering the phone. Here is a list of things I have tried to stop the relentless hiccuping.
1. Drinking water
2. Holding my breath
3. Eating cadbury mini eggs
4. Making Cary scare me
5. Eating cake
7. Collecting all of the star coins on Mario on the wii. (Only 3 left-booya.)
8. Complaining some more
Nothing has worked! But it's obvious that I just need to eat more Cadbury mini egss. I told myself I wasn't going to buy any until Easter. But after a rough trip at Wal-Mart, I was jonesing for hit and there they were, sitting all pretty-like near the register. So I fell off the wagon. Failure has never tasted so good.
Back to the issue at hand. When I was little, I used to love having hiccups. I am not really sure why. Probably the same reason that I thought it was cool to get a bloody nose and I really wanted crutches. I was a strange child. But hiccups have lost their appeal and I no longer get excited about them. How do you get rid of hiccups?? But for reals, ya'll! Help a sister out. Because I think I am getting a chronic case of hiccups. How embarrassing.
