Little guy: "Try holding your breath."
Me: "That's what I have been doing. HIC! It's not working."
Little guy: "Eat a spoonful of sugar."
Me: "Nope, that'll make me feel even worse. HIC!"
Little guy: "Drink some water and put your fingers in your ears at the same time."
Me: "HIC! That's the one I heard about! You have to help me do that when we get home."
Little guy: "I'm not going to put my fingers in your ears or help you drink."
So, dejected and on my own at home, I took a big gulp and held the water in my mouth, put my fingers in my ears, and then swallowed.
And it worked!
