Singultus – the official name for hiccup.
Suddenly I have this thought and I want to put it down – as I should have for so many other random thoughts these past few years. Instead I have let them slip past, leaving an abyss of a history behind.
When I saw this word, singultus, old memories of my hiccup experiences rose from the back of my mind, and I thought to myself: Would it be possible, during the remaining years of my short life, to write down every single experience that I had in this life?
This would be the one thing I want to do, for the love of life, and in defiance of death.
