Much ado about Hiccups

My friend from Mexico told me that there they have the cutest tradition for stopping hiccups in babies – you put a red thread on their foreheads! And it works.

When I was a kid, my mom would try to scare me – she felt scaring would send them away. I would hiccup a lot on drives, and she would also told me to start counting between hiccups. I think that was a psychological trick but it worked.

And another trick was drinking water – just a little bit. Stopping and asking ‘What are you drinking?’ and then replying ‘Hiccup meds!’ (in my language, of course).

Some people suggest honey.

Do you have any such funny stories?
