At 8:20 pm tonight I will have been voiceless for five days, with complete voice rest for four of those. No better yet, after three medicated days. This is monotonous, to say the least. On the good side, I’m getting the blog updated AND I’m really getting caught up on my homework. Less awesome side effect? I’m feeling isolated & lonely. Apparently I’m quite the talker.
I set my alarm this morning, thinking a night of rest/quiet would improve the state of my vocal cords & I would be fine to go to work. However, I sipped my warm beverage and tried to have a chat with Franklyn the big yellow dog. Hissing air and squeaking…. No voice = no work for me, as my primary job is communication… So, I’m sitting here–silently but impatiently….
