at a loss

So yesterday I lost my voice. Not in some tragic metaphorical sense. Literally. That doesn't happen to me very often at all. In fact, I can't remember another time I wasn't able to eek out anything more audible than a whisper. Today I'm squeaking out a few words in between bouts of uncontrollable coughing. Life is fun...

It's cold. I'm not going out there. I'm so Southern.

i took your "how normal are you" test. here are the results:

***You Are 60% Normal***


Otherwise known as the normal amount of normal
You're like most people most of the time
But you've got those quirks that make you endearing
You're unique, yes... but not frighteningly so!

so it seems, i'm not the special snowflake my mother assured me i was.

Apparently I'm not as normal as I thought...

***You Are 40% Normal***


While some of your behavior is quite normal...
Other things you do are downright strange
You've got a little of your freak going on
But you mostly keep your weirdness to yourself

I always thought *I* was normal and everyone else was weird!

Did you just wake up that morning and not have a voice? Or did you notice it going away gradually as you were talking? Makes a difference.

Try not to whisper, as it is very hard on your vocal chords. Don't try to talk, drink a hot-toddy (whiskey, lemon, and honey), and maybe suck on a throat losenge. I'd tell you to sing if you need to talk, as it singing uses different parts of your vocal chords and it's easier on them, but that could be a little weird.

Hope they are better soon!

I'm 40% normal. But 100% extrordinary.

Is it a coincidence that Bubba and I are both 40% normal? I think not....

I am 40% normal. Being a cousin of the Bubbas' I think that we are all sorta normal...:)

You Bubbas are funny. It's a wonder Katielady snuck in there... Maybe Tater will have a chance at normalcy. :o)

I look at laryngitis as a good excuse not to talk to anyone. Hee hee.
