That's right. I can't talk. It happens so suddenly sometimes you know? I woke up Friday morning with a sore throat, but it went away. When I woke up Saturday morning with a sore throat, I figured it would be more of the same, but by 5:00 I couldn't talk anymore! It's now into its third day, and I still can't manage more than a whisper.

For someone who needs to talk in order to work, this is upsetting. I couldn't work today, so here I am at home twiddling my thumbs trying not to talk. This sucks. Oh well, could be worse I guess.

My co-workers were really enjoying themselves this morning at my expense, asking if anyone wanted a coffee, looking at me knowing I wanted one but unable to voice my desire. They'd laugh that this is the quietest morning they've had since I started. All of these jokes of course roll right off my back, but I am making notes. They'll need me someday, and when they do...

Anyhow, I guess a few days off never hurt anyone. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to get back into the swing of things. We'll see.
