When I was a kid, my mom used to tell me that the purpose of hiccups was to make us grow (a little bit with each hiccup). This made sense to me because I used to get the hiccups often, and I was always the tallest in my class. I was about 16 when I casually mentioned to a friend one time when I had the hiccups “Wow, you’d think I was tall enough, I hope I stop getting the hiccups soon”. You can imagine their confusion, and my embarrassment when I realized the truth, many MANY years too late.
