My visiting teacher, Susan, was here a while back and Emma had the hiccups. She told Emma to come over and squeeze her pinkies as hard as she could. Susan held out her fists and put her pinkies up and Emma squeezed as hard as she could. Susan kept saying things like, "c'mon, you can squeeze harder", "is that as hard as you can squeeze?", "okay, now you're starting to hurt me a little!" This went on for about 45 seconds and Emma was giggling and then.....her hiccups were gone! I've done this at least 3 times with Emma since then and it totally works every time! Isn't that a cool trick?
