Favorite Highland Memory or Story:

I recall a hilarious incident in which a fellow class member (I will leave him unnamed since he is In Memory) developed intractable exceedingly loud repeated hiccups occurring very frequently during a class period. He was obviously trying to be polite and control them by holding his breath and other means but without success. I was biting my lips to be polite, trying hard not laugh, as were most of our classmates. Our usually very stern and discipline-oriented teacher understood the situation and compassionately excused him to leave the room until he got over the unpleasant spell. Most of us were still biting our lips to be polite, but when we heard a very loud hiccup echo from the men's room way down the hall, we all lost it.
