When you first read this you will probably think it's a joke. If so, try it anyway. Hiccuping doesn't make you look sophisticated either so what have you got to loose?
|No more hiccups!|
Step 1. Grab a glass of water or better yet a bottle that you can pick up with your teeth.
Step 2. Plug your ears and nose. Easiest done by putting your thumbs in your ears and your fingers on your nose.
Step 3. While keeping your nose and ears plugged drink at least half a glass of water. (It can work with just a mouthful of water but isn't as foolproof.)
If you are by yourself and don't have a bottle, it is possible to pick the glass up with your little pinkies. Otherwise get someone to help you.
Step 4. Victory dance!
(If it doesn't work, you probably didn't swallow often enough. Just try again with a bit more water. )
I don't remember where we learned this and have no idea why it works but it does so enjoy a hiccup free life!
