Thought Id take a break from the politics and offer you all a quick, non-verbal Cubanism.
Back before the oh so heralded advances in Cuba’s Healthcare, the Cuban woman invented the cure for baby hiccups. Yes, that’s right, you read correctly, the cure for hiccups is a Cubanism. Of sorts.
Here it is:
Gently place hiccuping baby down on crib or hold hiccuping baby delicately in arms. With your free hand, gently pull a piece of string from your baby’s teddy or from his blanky. Take the small piece of string and lick it, applying a generous amount of Mommy saliva. Then take the string and paste it in a circular pattern on the hiccuping babies forehead.
The hiccups are now cured a lo Cubano.
