Unprotected Hiccups

| MN, USA | Related | September 13, 2012

(We’re on a road trip when Dad starts hiccupping. I’m the oldest of five kids.)
Mom: “Hold your breath!”
Dad: “I tried that!”
Mom: “I’m pregnant.”
Dad: “WHAT?!”
Mom: “Did I scare you enough?”
Dad: “You’re crazy, you know that? Yes, you scared me enough!”
(The next day, it’s Mom that’s hiccupping.)
Dad: “Mary, I’m pregnant.”
(My mom stares at him, cracks up, and is no longer hiccupping. Since then, our family has cure hiccups by declaring pregnancy.)
