Tonight I had a good dose of the hiccups. I was hiccuping every 10 or 15 seconds. Weird stuff.

The oldest daughter told me, "think of blue and you'll stop hiccuping".

I looked at her trying to process exactly how thinking about blue would help the situation when I realized the hiccup attack had stopped. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't force another one out. Then I tried to stop thinking of blue which was even bloody harder.

So I was sitting there looking stupidly at her trying to decide if I should tell her that that was the stupidest thing I'd ever heard, but was living proof it was a cure.

Give it a try next time you be hiccuping. Google doesn't suggest it's a commonly known cure, but the daughter swears by it.

Mike got married (to Kat), I took some photos and then potatoshopped the life out of one of them.

  • Years ago a little totty I worked with said that the next time I hiccupped, she would get her nogs out. Bugger me if that wasn't a mighty fine opportunity. Couldn't squeeze one out thought. Curiously, I can't get the same result when I offer to get mine out for someone. Btw, what the daughter asking you about the colour blue or your mother-in-law?

  • i used to have to drink a carbonated drink upside down to get rid of my hiccups...it was the only thing that worked. after reading this post i tried thinking about blue and surprisingly it worked... and even better...it continues to work so my consumption of carbonated drinks (except champagne, of course!) has been eliminated. :)

  • IN ANY CASE IF YOU TRY MY WAY OF HICCUPS ELIMINATION YOU WILL BE GREATLY RELIEVED. FOR I GOT THE "UNHICCUPER" OR THE "HICCUPS BUSTER" THAT GETS YOU RID OF HICCUPS IN JUST 15 SECONDS, EVERY TIME WITHOUT FAIL. THIS CURE IS THE ONLY WORKING ONE ON THE PLANET AND WILL GET THE WORLD RID OF THR HICCUPS ONCE AND FOR ALL. THERE WILL BE NO MORE UNCONTROLLABLE OR UNSTOPPABLE HICCUPS. THEM HICCUPS WILL BECOME HISTORY. EVERYBODY WILL KNOW HOW TO GET RID OF HICCUPS AND WILL FORGET THAT HICCUPING EVER WAS A PROBLEM. MANY FACTORS CAUSE HICCUPS, BUT FINALLY ALL OF THEM RESULT IN SPASMS OF THE DIAPHRAGM. THE MAIN EFFECT OF THE UNHICCUPER IS IN GETTING YOUR DIAPHRAGM RID OF SPASMS. YOU CAN DO IT EVERYWHERE IN CASE YOU START HICCUPING. IT IS VERY EASY AND 100% SAFE AND EFFECTIVE. HERE IS WHAT TO DO: STANDING, OR SITTING ON A CHAIR LEAN YOUR HEAD BACKWARDS AS MUCH AS YOU CAN, TO THE MAXIMUM. BREATHE NORMALLY. COUNT UP TO 15. SLOWLY BRING YOUR HEAD BACK TO NORMAL POSITION. THE HICCUPS ARE GONE (FOR A LONG TIME).
