This might confuse you if you don’t understand the metaphor.

The Husband and I got “the hiccups” last weekend. Bad. So, we did what any normal couple would do. We drank salt water while standing on our heads and sang the alphabet backwards. And I think they’re gone now. Or, at least, subsiding. I really hate hiccups.

However, since then, I feel as though I’m kind of floating about, trying to touch down on even ground, but not really sure where that might be. Who knows, maybe I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things. I mean, it would appear as though I’m blogging again. (I won’t say “regularly” until tomorrow.) The other stuff? Like baking and photography? Yeah, it’s kinda like my kids just watched me throw something heavy and breakable at Daddy’s head and are taking a while to warm back up to me. Like, fuck, am I going to do the same to them?


Found this on my cell phone. Totally wish I was here right now.

  1. Okay, just checking on you. You sound better today!

    Hiccups really suck. They can disrupt everything. Nothing feels settled until they're gone, and gone for a good while cause you know how easy it is for those dern hiccups to come back.Maybe get yourself a Cadbury Creme egg (or Gadiva if that's your poison), that always helps me get through hiccups.

  3. MichelleSG says:

    Yeah me too. Although I really prefer sour apple martinis…

    A Cadbury Creme Egg sounds good.So does a Sour Apple Martini.Then again, a chocolate martini wouldn't hurt either.Godiva chocolate liquor is DELICIOUS.

    Good to see you back – the hiccups are awful so I'm glad they are behind you. If they come back, I hear that suffocating the husband will get rid of them. I'm a fan of the pomegranate martini these days…but making do with Vicodin while I'm homebound.

    Sounds like your truck had a flat tire. Change it out and keep rollin'.You know, metaphorically-wise.

    Glad you're back. Metaphorical hiccups or not!

  8. YetAgainJen says:

    When the hiccups are over, make sure you check the couch for a ham sandwich stuffed under the cushions. Those can quietly decompose for months, and by the time you smell it you've got quite a mess on your hands.

  9. Stephanie says:

    YetAgainJen, good point and we're on it. We brought in a specialist to help uncover those decomposing ham sandwiches. They can get real gross real quick and, well… we need all the help we can get.

    Something I learned when I as working in a restaurant that helps hiccups instantly. Bitters. Get a shot of lemon juice and add a few drops of bitters. Take the shot and voila! No more hiccups. 🙂

  11. I'm glad you're back….hiccups, rotten sandwiches, whatever….just glad to hear from you.
