I decided this would be an appropriate song for today. I woke up with no voice, so this song has been going through my mind all morning. It is a mystery as to how long my voice will be gone. Could be 3 days, could be 7 days! I really am not looking to break any records and have it longer this time! For when my voice goes it really goes, there is no hoarseness about it, it is totally silent! Just a whisper!
My voice gives me no warning before it leaves and comes back with no warning! I can be whispering and all of a sudden my volume has increased 🙂 This first started back in 1990 when I lived down in South Carolina with a group of friends. Needless to say, they did enjoy the times my voice left me. Being a group that played a lot of jokes, this gave lots of opportunity! The one time that always stands out to me is when we were all walking in downtown Charleston. 2 certain guys in our group, who will remain nameless started saying in loud voices., “50cents to see the midget!” , yes they would point at me! No, they didn’t make any money, LOL! But there was a older lady who did stop and patted me on the head saying how she would pay more than that to see me!! For those of you that may be new to my blog, I measure in at the grand height of 4’10 and 1/2. 🙂 I was 19 at this time and I did not blame the sweet, old lady. No, the daggers in my eyes were meant for the 2 nameless guys. LOL!
When we were married and I lost my voice for the first time my hubby found it humorous as well. Now if I felt sick with it, it would be different, but I don’t. So this morning he gave me a big smile as he left for work. Tho he will admit that if it gets too long, he does miss it! 🙂
So we will see what happens, for now enjoy the song and give out a little yell for me. 🙂
