Gordon had a cold all last week, and by Saturday I had it, too. Not a bad one, just a tickle in my throat and a bit of drainage. Not a big deal. Then we went to his sister's birthday party Saturday night and my voice left before I did.
It still hasn't come back. I could croak some on Sunday, and squeak a tiny bit yesterday. Today? Nothing. I'm on complete and total voice rest for at least the next 24 hours. Up until today I was trying to talk, and then figured I'm just straining and irritating things more.
So this morning I went to Starbucks to get something hot to drink and typed into my PDA: "Hi! I've lost my voice. Could I please get a venti soy no-foam chai?" The barista took pity on me and gave it to me for free and she said that even though I lost my voice I still looked good! I mimed to her that I feel fine now, just have no voice.
I'm doing what I can to get rid of this, but I think time will be the biggest help. Grr. At least I can text message people if I need to!
