You may feel a sudden jolting sensation in the back of your throat. You may feel it to be moderately uncomfortable.
You might try drinking water, getting tickled, getting scared, eating peanut butter.
You may hold your breath.
You might, if you are one of our children, declare:
I need a spoon of maple syrup!
You would, of course, be trying to cure the hiccups.
But not our sweet L, bless her mispronunciations. Each time, she will declare:
I have the pickups!
