I’ve had a really bad sore throat which has rendered me voiceless. When I was a child, I used to lose my voice, unfailingly, every April. As a teenager I thought my hoarse voice sounded really sexy. It was just my thinking, no one verified this to me however I looked forward to losing my voice each year for this reason.
Maybe it’s because I have quite a high pitched voice so I had a preference for a husky one. Who knows. When I moved to England this stopped and it became quite rare for me to lose my voice. After I got married, it happened in our first year of marriage. When my husband heard my voice, he said ewwwww. To my surprise, this voice was not sexy at all to him.
C’est la vie.
