Q. I just wanted you to know I read your column recently about the power of green olives fighting hiccups. My 5 year old got the hiccups the next day. Guess what? One green olive did the trick. Coincidence or science? Who knows, but we're convinced it worked!

A. We’re delighted to learn that this unusual remedy worked for your child.

    A fellow student while I was in college gave me this silly cure and it works every time! Over the top of a glass of water place a paper napkin. Have the hiccuper take sips of water through the napkin. It works!
