You Talk Too Much

Thursday, February 17, 2011

The difference between being at home with a bad throat and larngitis, is that at home, I don't have to talk that much. The pups have been taking advantage - I let them out to the front yard, and try to call them back in a hoarse whisper. They give me that look of "you talking to me? Cause, I don't HEAR you!" I end up whistling and slapping my leg.

At work, I have to keep talking. Not so amusing when I answer the phone, when people go "hello? hello? Is anyone there?"

Anyway, my throat is killing me now after being here 9 hours. I can't take the Vicodin (narcotic) to supress my cough because, well, it's a narcotic, but the coughing is ripping out my throat.

I 'm having to call off tonight. In (dis)honor of my throat, I present - Joe Jones, 1960

You talk too much
You worry me to death
You talk too much
You even worry my pet

You just talk
Talk too much

You talk about people
That you don't know
You talk about people
Wherever you go

You just talk
Talk too much

You talk about people
That you've never seen
You talk about people
You can make me scream

You just talk
you talk too much

    For a minute there I thought you were talkin' to
    Hubby is real quiet and we're often referred to as the Babbling Brook and The Silent Stream! I figured I'd been monopolizing some conversation somewhere. ;)

    Hope you start feeling better soon...Take care of YOU!

    Feel better soon and don't talk and whispering makes it worse. Drink your water or tea with lemon.

    keep drinking your fluids and stay VERY hydrated my friend

    I'd forgotten about that song. Reminds me of one by Toby Keith "I Wanna Talk About Me" where he goes on about all the things his girlfriend talks about and he says once in a while I wanna talk about me.
