Yesterday, I had a senior portrait session downtown Detroit. Days leading up to the session, I was dreading the worse because I was not sick but something was up with my throat leaving me unable to talk off & on.
My voice sounded horrible but I felt no pain. Seems like since I got that flu shot, I’ve been having all kinds of body drama. I’m just saying.
Saturday, I met with friends and at the end of the night, my voice was GONE. I woke up Sunday & the voice was still GONE but I was not going to cancel my session because I could not talk!
I wasn’t sure how I was going to make it through but I was going to make it happen.
At the beginning of the session, I let the clients know that I was going to be doing a lot of whispering. It was actually kind of funny. I made it through the session with nothing vocally to spare.
I joked on Facebook that I whispered through my photo session like it was a Ying Yang twins video. Yeah, I got jokes!
On the way home, I was at a stoplight telling myself that I was not going to talk for the next few days to let my throat rest.
Also, while at the light, I noticed this uniquely Detroit liquor store sign. The sign actually made me smile for some unknown reason. Maybe it was the colors. Maybe because the sign was lit but it was in a vacant lot.
Anyway, I still cannot talk. Dammit!
