Cure for Hiccups - regardless of age....

Well, you could take this route for hiccups....A woman went to the doctor's office where she was seen by the youngest doctor on staff. After a few minutes in the examination room, she ran down the hall screaming. An older doctor stopped her and settled her into another room as she told him her story. The older doctor marched down the hallway back to where the young doctor was writing on his clipboard. "What's the matter with you?" the older doctor demanded. "That patient is 61 years old.
