Have you ever had the hiccups for more than 24 hours straight?
I felt bad for this poor customer who called in today. But I had to suppress a laugh. He had the hiccups and he said he's had them for the last two days (as of this post). If only I'd remembered to suggest the one cure I remember someone telling me about. A shot of bitters is a sure-fire remedy, apparently. Personally, I don't have the courage to try it. But then again, I haven't had hiccups last for more than an hour if even that. I suppose if I'd had them for 48 hours and absolutely nothing else was working, I might give it a try. Don't know how that poor guy was able to sleep. He said he can sleep thru anything, but come on. You're body is constantly jerking with hiccups. How do you sleep thru that?
