I’m off to bed – finished school planning for Andy (sniff, just one kid at home this year). Dan is abandoning us in just 26 days. Ian and Tim are taking three college courses and two here, but it’s not like the good old days where we mummified chickens or built and then burnt down London. And, in the spring, Ian and Tim will be gone. So weird.
But, earlier tonight, I ran into a kid with hiccups. If you have not tried this, I swear it works – 90% on the first try and 98% if you have to try again. Fill a cup with 4-5 oz of water. Have the hiccup-er hold the glass, ready to drink while you light a match and toss it into the cup. The minute the match hits the water, the hiccup-er should drink the glass of water (minus the match, of course). I don’t know why it works, but it does. And it’s way better than trying to suck down a spoonful of sugar – what was Mary Poppins thinking?
