A Different Voice


This morning when I woke up, I had a different person's voice. I don't know whose it was, but it wasn't mine.

I've had a sore throat for most of the week, brought on (I think) by a very distressing bout of acid reflux. After all, if stomach acid is burning away at your oesophagus for 20 seconds, there's going to be some damage. Some defensive mucus built up, plus I had to keep swallowing, to stop my throat from hurting, and somehow some of this gakk attached itself to my vocal chords while I slept. The result when I awoke this morning was a voice two octaves lower than what I normally have.

Actually, it was quite impressive. It was the kind of command voice I could have used to stop a train. It only lasted about 3 hours, though, then wore off leaving me sore throat free.

I expect the original owner wanted it back.
