Hiccups

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

I currently have the Hiccups.

Now for some people, the Hiccups are naught but a momentary nuisance that fades away into oblivion after a few moments. But this is not the case for me... Hiccups are a very big annoyance for me. I once timed a bout of Hiccups... it lasted for over 5 minutes. That's right. 5 minutes of trying to hold my breath, drink water right side up or upside down, searching for bald ladies, counting koala bears, ANYTHING! You name it, I've probably tried it. They just stay until they decide to go away. Thankfully, I do not get the Hiccups as often as I used to! But they come in groups. I have a single or double Hiccup early in the day, and I know I'm in trouble because before the sun sets, I'll be dealing with a full bout. And maybe another one the next day. Then the Hiccups go away... for weeks or even a month or so... but their return is inevitable. Blast their Spasmy Hides!

Anyway! Even though the wind was blowing all day I got out and enjoyed some archery. No bullseyes today, but I did shoot the concrete block that my target is set up on (oops).

I feel like I've had the heebeejeebies all day today. But I know that if I go out to the stores to wander around when I'm in that kind of mood, I'm likely to buy something I don't need or really even want (like junk foods and new pretty notebooks when I've got 5 that I haven't used yet). A bad case of the heebeejeebies and a "I don't know what I want to do" attitude... not a great combination for the day.

But I managed to not snack out of boredom and antsy-ness! WooHoo! Major Victory for me right there!
#NoSnackingAfterDinner Day 2 is in the process!

I've got some pretty nice streaks going right now! Yay!
Ooh! My Hiccups finally disappeared! Double YAY!

    Prompt:

    I have been challenged to a duel by a vegan. My weapon of choice is raw eggs! emoticon

    The best hiccup cure is taking deep even breaths to calm the diaphragm. I have also cured them by laying on my bed on my back, like POOKASLAUGH, but with my head hanging down so the blood goes to my brain.

    It sounds like we hiccup the same way! Mine are painful adn I usually end uplying on my back until they go away, and then they come back multiple times during the day!! It's terrible. Mine have weird triggers too, like potato-heavy foods tend to make me hiccup...
