Sorry to be a bore, but I am still sick.
I took it real easy this weekend but made the mistake of going out to breakfast with my old friend Kyle yesterday and talking for 3 hours. I couldn't NOT do it - he lives across the state and we hadn't seen each other for 3 years. But it cost me my voice.
Then last night Mr. Stapler came over and we walked the dog for about an hour and I talked as best I could. We went to dinner (I am apparently destined to never eat at home) in a noisy place and I ended up just gesturing a lot.
I slept for 12 hours. This morning my friend Martha called and all I could squeak out was "hhhhhheeeelllOOOOOO?" and aspirate a few other syllables.
So don't call. It will just go to voice mail.
