#269 – Steady

Whenever I have anything done at a hospital I rarely know what they are really doing to me. I always have to trust the “Looks good!” at the end. Something about the awkward smile and the over the top thumbs up makes me a little suspicious.

Today’s Biff nails it.

    Most hiccup “cures” are actually designed for the amusement of your friends; not any benefit to you.

    The one hiccup cure for me that has never failed: pour a little sugar onto my tongue, then swallow some water. Done twice and hiccups are gone!!! (Not every cure seems to work for everyone but I’ve convinced a lot of others of the truth of this one…for one or two it doesn’t work.)

    When they just stand around and say nothing after surgery, looking at each other trying to figure what to say in front of you is when I get worried. I wonder just how bad they screwed up and if they fixed it. Happy to say it was “probably” all my imagination.

    Fortunately, the patient has been frozen and had his midsection shattered. And the reassembly surgery happened during an earthquake, so it all evened out.

    I just pinch my bottom lip for a little while. For some odd reason it seems to work for me. I have no medical or logical reason why.

    I have learned through personal experience that the ONLY effective cure for hiccups is to emit a particularly loud and embarrassing hiccup.

    Hiccups are easy for me to catch. All I have to do is laugh hard enough until *HICCUP!*

    I hope i never have to have surgery… I have some sort of condition where anesthetics don’t work on me, or they don’t work very long. It would suck to wake up in the middle of an operation…

    What I do is inhale as much air as I can, then lean over and hold my breath for as long as I can. Or if that doesn’t work, soda always works.
