Silent – Day 20

by Jen on January 25, 2011

Here’s the thing.  I’ve not been 100% silent for the past 19 days, but I’ve been INCREDIBLY quiet.  I can say with absolute certainty that I’ve done the very best I could have without completely losing my sanity and/or letting my professional life suffer.  I don’t know for sure what has happened in the last 48 hours, but I AM FRUSTRATED.  I am no better today than I was on the first day of this “prescription”.  I’ve taken Nexium, and Prilosec as directed.  I’ve cut my soda intake back to a maximum of one soda a day.  I’ve not eaten spicy food before bed.  I’ve drank hot tea.  I’ve even stopped eating chips and salsa, which, as you know, is sort of the fuel for my survival.
I have phone calls to make.  I tried calling my insurance company the other day only to be greeted with voice prompts.  Guess what?  The robot could not make out what I was saying!  “I’m sorry I didn’t understand.  Please repeat that.”  Fuck YOU, robot.  I tried ordering pizza tonight and, “Ma’am, I think your phone’s cutting out.  Ma’am?  Hello?”  Click.  I want to break something.  I want to kick something.  No, I want to SCREAM.  
My Silent Supporter for today couldn’t have come at a better time.  I’m needing a good laugh – something to get me out of this funk.  So Bryce, thank you for being Meredith’s sweet baby brother, and thank you for giving me your version of “Blue Steel”.  You are one sensual morsel of manliness.  I am pretty certain I will gain at least 67 more blog followers because of you.  Can you feel my gratitude???
