poor lily. she seems to have inherited my propensity to having the hiccups. she’s now having them for the fourth time in the past 24 hours!
lily: mom, how do you write “go away, hiccups. i hate you?”
mom: oh, lily, i’m sorry you have the hiccups again. that must really bother you.
lily: i’m going to send it up to God and tell him that i hate hiccups and to make them stop!
