Longsufferinggirlfriendoftheblogbeth has this great trick for helping a person suffering a bout of hiccups.
‘What did you have for lunch yesterday?’ she’ll ask.
Then, ‘What about the day before that?’
‘And the day before that?’
It really works. Although, I’m told, it loses efficacy with multiple treatments.
Go on. Try it. You don’t have to be suffering from hiccups.
