There’s a girl at the bar, she’s got the hiccups. I tell her, I got somethin for ya. I get the slice of lime, splash some bitters on it, hand it to her on a napkin. Here ya go, I say. Just suck it. She sticks it in her mouth and sucks it.
Minute later, she’s got a happy look on her face. Oh my God, she says, my hiccups are gone! Told ya, I say. Ancient bartender secret. Just slice of lime with bitters. She says, well. It totally worked.
Later on, she pukes in my sink. But that has nothing to do with my story.
From my heart to yours,
Clint Curtis. Bartender.
