No one likes the Hiccups.
No one asks for the Hiccups.
Getting rid of the Hiccups is an exercise in trying a variety of cures that might work for some people but not all (which further exasperates us).
And eventually, they go away, and we move on, and get back to what we were doing in the first place.
Truth be told, we have Hiccups every day, they just don’t make that annoying noise we’ve come to recognize them by.
