I sound like a frog. I’m a little sick and since Saturday my voice has been lost. Except “lost” doesn’t quite foot the bill. “Three octaves lower and coated in mucous” would be more accurate. It also hurts to use it, which has made me realize that I talk a lot. It hurts even more to yell, which creates an infuriating feedback loop and I yell in anger, then yell in pain, and then yell in anger at myself for forgetting about the pain…rinse, lather, repeat.
