Hiccupping Jennifer Mee Runs Away from Home


Florida teenager Jennifer Mee, who had consistent hiccups for five weeks earlier this year, and whose hiccups then mysteriously went away and then mysteriously reappeared, ran away from home this past weekend but was found less than a day later:
The hiccups that forced her out of school have only been sporadic recently, [Mee's mother Rachel] Robidoux said.

Mee had been upset after a disagreement with her stepfather over a Myspace.com account they didn't know about. They disconnected her cell phone service as punishment.
Link. So she sounds like a typical Gen Y teenager with typical teenager-parent issues, and it's kind of unfair to make fun of her. But she has the hiccups a lot! Which is interesting and funny. You can run away from a disconnected cell phone, Jennifer, but you can't run away from your diaphragm.

Poor little Jennifer Mee
Had terrible hiccups, you see.
She ran from her home
(Hence this terrible poem)
But can never outrun her disease.

Am I the only person that think's she did it all for attention?


Sounds like something a girl, just entering high school, too afraid to push on with her social world and conform into some group would do. A subtle, annoying, undiagnosable hissy fit.

Making her super popular, known by the whole nation and avoiding that ackward freshman year.

Makes sense to me.
