i learn so much at work
I was waiting on hold for a telephone conference to start and suddenly...
I had big, loud, sounds like you've had a 10 martini lunch hiccups. Luckily, my workmate Jonathon had a surefire cure. Although I am convinced that most hiccup cures are strictly for the amusement of the sadistic friend or colleague who suggests them, this cure actually worked (and amused the people around me - everyone wins, really). I was instructed to hold my fingers in my ear and take a deep breath, hold it for as long as possible, and then release the breath slowly through my nose. I did all this while cradling the phone against my head and giggling like a loon. It worked! Am considering nominating Jon for the "Way to go Citrite" award.
