Tonight the bf wanted to end our phone conversation early, so he could (how dare he) take a shower. My reply to this, "Um...hello? Don't you want to listen to me? You don't have too many days left of hearing my actual voice before I turn into a mime...and then...a ventriloquist?" In Steve's head I'm sure he's thinking, "Thank the freakin' Lord!"
There is much confusion as to when I will be able to speak normally again. And how good will I be at speaking with my mouth not moving? I'm not gonna lie, I've totally tried already -- in my bathroom, alone. But, will I be able to excel in the working world? I do answer phones in my job for a living. Is this going to be a problem? Huh. Probably something to think about. But, again, trying to reach for the positive...maybe after all this, I'll have a career at Sesame Street or bring the sock puppet Lamb Chop back?
