There are dozens of ways to cure the hiccups that involve using a glass of water. For example, you can drink water from the wrong side of the glass. Or, if you can figure it out, you can drink it upside down. You might try leaning your head all the way back and gulping it that way. Sometimes drinking water really fast works, but then again others swear that the slower the better. Should the water be room temperature or ice cold? You tell me... I've never really given it much thought. Some folks might have you drink the water through a straw or possibly through a paper towel placed over the rim of the glass. You can even try plugging your nose or your ears, oh hell, why not plug them both just for good measure. The possibilities go on and on. If just plain water doesn't work some say that vinegar, bitters or even lemonade should be added to the glass.
Personally I take my water straight up! I like to hold my breath while I count to ten and then down a 12 oz glass of water. It usually does the trick... but then again sometimes it doesn't.
How do you cure the hiccups?
I realize that it is not Sunday... but I usually don't sort out what I'm going to do with the prompt until the week is halfway over... The prompt this week was...glass.
