 what does drink upside down means? 

 Dear Doctor Nightingale Pixie, 

"Drink Upside Down" means that you drink with your head bent over so it's  like you are standing upside down with your feet in the air and your head on the ground.

Hi SuperPlatinum1000,
That's a good question. The apostrophe ( ' ) shows possession.
e.g. Ana's cat = the cat belongs to Ana.
We use an apostrophe without s to show possession with plural nouns.
e.g. The girls' cat = the cat belongs to the girls.
(Exception: If a plural noun does not end in s we use 's e.g. The children's cat).

I hope that helps!
Best wishes,

I have question: What's the difference between Ana's and Anas' ?

My parents told me when someone has hiccups, someone else is mentioning you. 

In this week I had hiccups! (Strange!)

How long do hiccups stop???
