Ways to torture Kurt [Apr. 12th, 2004|07:52 pm]

Step one: Give Kurt a sore throat that makes his voice sound scratchy and squeaky when he sings.

Step two: Leave him alone in the house, where he could sing along to his music at the top of his lungs if he wanted to, but can't because a) it hurts too much, and b) his voice sounds like crap at the moment.

Step three: Let sit for a few days.


Yeah, I've been sick since Monday night, and I'm still not better. Went to the doctor today (thanks, Lisa!) and she checked me for strep throat. It came out negative, but still gave me some antibiotics, since she thinks it's bacterial and not viral. The worst part of this for me, besides not being able to hang out with my friends, is what I stated above. For me, singing is a physical need. When I really get into a song, I can't help but sing along with it, and not being able to do so, for whatever reason, is more frustrating than most people understand. Especially if it's a song that I've just discovered recently...

Hopefully, I'll be getting better soon. Lisa assures me that I shouldn't be contagious anymore, so at least I'll still be able to do the D&D game tomorrow. Although, if my voice hasn't improved any, we'll see how long I can run it...

COMPLETELY understand that one. I'm always humming, singing - in the car I'm the one people talk about who's singing so loudly you can probably hear me with the windows up. You're right - people don't get it that it's really horrible to not be able to sing when it is something you enjoy.

Total sympathy. Drink hot lemon and honey if you can tolerate it - honey is a natural coater for nasty throats and is also a natural decongestant. It's always been a lifesaver for me when I had to rely on my voice to get me through classes. Hope you feel better soon!

I know your pain!

I know exactly what you mean! Nobody around to disturb, it's the perfect time to rattle the windows! I know that must drive you crazy, but it'll be over soon. In the mean time, get yourself a nice kazoo.

Kazoo?

That's not likely, but every now and then, I think about learning the harmonica.

Re: Kazoo?

I can see it, that would be great. You would look perfect blasting away on a harmonica. Of course, this is coming from someone who once considered taking up the washboard and the musical saw.

Re: Kazoo?

Yeah, but you think I look perfect no matter what I do...

Of course, If I knew this then, I wouldn't have forced you to talk to me.
