Sunday, October 25, 2009      2 comments

After 36 days without much more than a whisper coming out of my mouth I have a new appreciation for modern conveniences like my computer (IM) and my cell phone (texting). I am fairly sure that this is not a permanent condition (will find out mo... Read more
