I’ve been sick a lot this fall. I got another cold at the beginning of the week, but I thought that it was the 24 hour variety. Maybe there isn’t a 24 hour cold, maybe that is only the flu or another virus. Anyway, I went back into work yesterday, mostly because I was having my storytime evaluated, something I’d been putting off for about six months.

I did a great job on my storytime, and was feeling really good until about 3, when my voice started to go. I kind of liked my fading voice. I sounded really sexy, like a ‘40’s movie star.

I went to bed early, and woke up around four to the sound of a crash. I looked out my window and watched a bunch of drunken cyclists try to determine if their friend who had crashed into a car was okay. I couldn’t get back to sleep, so I decided to test my voice. A decidedly unsexy squeak came out, and then nothing.

What will I do now that I can’t talk? How long will it last?
