Laryngitis, ever had it?
I can't believe anything could silence my voice, but for the first time in my life laryngitis has completely taken my voice. It came on over the past
24 hours and now I got nothin'. At first I could talk normally, with an odd squeak now and then. Then it became more squeaking than talking. Now,
even the squeaking has been replaced by just pure whispering air.
I don't even think I was really sick, I mean I did have a stomach ache for a day or so and my wife had been sick for a day where she got kind of
hoarse. I didn't have anything like a sore throat or anything, although I was extraordinarily tired yesterday. I just woke up (about an hour and a
half earlier than my normal 3:30am wake up time) and let the dogs out. Now I just realized one of the pitfalls of no voice...I can't call the dogs
back in. I can whistle, or clap, but the dogs just look at me like..."Cool, Dad, what now??"
. Normally, a whistle or clap would be followed
by an voice command to do something (and these dogs are extremely well trained), so they look up and kind of shrug like..."I guess Dad is just
practicin' his whistlin' and clappin', party on!"
**sigh** (silently, of course)
How do you get rid of this crap???
Oh, and if you see an ACD and an Australian Shepard with a herd of critters rounded up, send their asses back home. Dang dogs probably have half the
critters in the County rounded up by now! Maybe I'll just start drivin' around in my truck and randomly honking the horn. Then people will think
lost it this time! LOL!
ETA - Those two have already rounded up the cows, the neighbor's horses and some geese they found somewhere! I got a feeling I know what I'm gonna'
be doing come daylight!
