Lollipops. Popsicles. Seasickness wristbands. Vitamin B6. Lemonade. Saltines. Deep breathing. Candied ginger. I have tried and continue to hope these home remedies help me keep my rising gorge at bay.
But I have a not so secret weapon. I plug in my iPod and find my disco playlist. I search for the songs that can make everything and anything better. “Rock Your Baby.” “I’m caught up.” “I want your love.” “Haven’t you heard.” I forget I am queasy. I remember.
