Sotto Voce - trinalin thinks things through — LiveJournal
Sotto Voce
As happens once or twice a school year, I have lost my voice. I started getting (what I hope is) a mild cold last night, and this morning, no voice. I don't feel bad at all, just can't talk. Oh, I can talk a little - we're not looking at Trina the Mute, but it ain't pretty. One student likened it to a frog. I think that might even be an insult to frogs. Heh.

I'm hoping the voice is better tomorrow - I moved today's Physics notes to tomorrow with that hope in mind. If not, I'll make a game of Charades of it. I'm sure the students will enjoy guessing my mimery of Newton's Law of Cooling & the Greenhouse Effect. Heh.

Anyhoo, as my self-prescribed medication, I've taken some Nyquil & I shall be quietly playing my video game for awhile. And I'll even try to get to bed early & all that jazz.

Current Mood: sore mute

To fix a froggy throat, drink hot liquids, including but not limited to: chicken soup, cocoa, tea and/or boullion.

Mrs Grass is definitely on the menu tonight. And a follow-up of hot chocolate sounds good. :-)

Hot tea and honey works. Feel better.

I'll talk even more than usual to make up for it.

*rambles incoherently about Sylv to her mother for an hour*

There we are, I can do the talking for both of us :D

Get well soon, Trina's voice, or I'll be forced to visit and poke you with a spork.

My sister's lost her voice too.

Which is amusing because I swear my nephew is two sounds away from saying his first word. He just jabbers away constantly while sis sounds like she's smoked every packet of fags in the western hemisphere. He even jabbers in his sleep (aww, bless, lol)

Try drinking vodka. Vodka will kill anything :D

If you don't fancy the tipple though, drink tea with honey, hot water with lemon juice or gargle with warm salt water. It's disgusting, but it helps.

Get well soon.
