Lollipops to cure hiccups! They seem like they could be awfully handy, especially if she can get the formula to taste a bit better and to be more shelf-stable.

When I read about them, I flashed on this comment in Making Light from 2005, in which Diane Duane describes the cause of hiccups and their cure, and in fact, it sounds like the young lady's lollipop solution has these things handled.

(The title comes from an episode of a sweet cartoon series called Kipper called The Bleepers, in which aliens are stranded on Earth, and Kipper helps them get home. "Lodleposh" is the aliens' pronunciation of "lollipop". The series was a favorite here when the kids were less than knee-high, and remembered fondly even now.)
