Cons and Prose

Cons:

Voice down to a whisper thanks to torn vocal chord.

People at work deliberately making me laugh because they know that it hurts to laugh.

Pros:

Nice lady at work made me a flip book with sayings like "Good morning," and "Send me that on e-mail." I added the saying "Stop making me laugh. It hurts."

16 days since my last cigarette.

Last year I was talking about the Getting Things Done Flowchart.

Two years ago I was talking about how to get my news feed to work.

Turns out the "sore throat" I had was a torn vocal cord. I was singing, testing microphones. Didn't realize how much my smoking was suppressing my singing until I quit smoking and started singing all the time because it didn't hurt to sing. Now it hurts like a tin can lid.

How does one tear a vocal cord?

I suggest adding "F*ck you very much." for the people who keep trying to make you laugh.

Singing.

I can't be mad and laugh. My fondest weakness.

I'm going into the Ear, Nose & Throat doctor tomorrow for a scope. Then I'll know. So far I'm just trying not to talk, laugh, sing or cough.

That's got to bee 100x worse than strep. I'm so sorry you;re hurt. I'll think good thoughts for you and the scoping.

I was worried I had strep, but since I've been tasting blood all day, I'm thinking maybe strep might be easier.

Apparently, internal bleeding when you laugh turns everyone into America's Funnyman.
