Voiceless

I lost my voice a few days ago, and it has been interesting.  This is the first time I've lost my voice completely, and here's what I'm noticing.

1.  Most people talk louder when they realize I can't speak.  Hrm?  It's MY voice that's volume-challenged, not  yours!
2.  I can't use the Starbucks drive thru.
3.  I talk and sing to myself quite a bit apparently... I miss that.  :(
4.  Teaching is really challenging without a voice.  Though it was hilarious trying to use a Brit-talking chipmunk courtesy voki.com to talk to teach!  Haha. 
5.  I can't take care of customer service-type issues.
6.  My parents don't like to text.  Pooo.
7.  I feel kind of trapped.  I need to invent a whistle that screams like Mr. T.
8.  Many people are really illiterate when it comes to lip reading.  They don't even want to try.  Pffft. Pffffft.
9.  It's kind of nice to be quiet sometimes.
10.  I'm really happy for the Steelers right now.  Really, they're scrappy.  I can't cheer for them though---not today.
11.  The only sign language I know is the middle finger.  I guess it's time to work on that!  :P

I want my voice back.  And if it sounds a little less like Sh-owen Wilson when it returns, that would be ok, too.  ;P

trapped.  silent.  raspy.
