30 Days of Blogging – Day 24

Day 24 — Given the choice between having to live the rest of my life without my voice, or living the rest of my life without the ability to hear, I would choose…

living my life without my voice. I can live without talking but giving up hearing – no way! How could I not enjoy another song, not hear when somebody’s talking in another room, not hear the birds outside. A place with no sound would feel so lonely!

Imagine the sound of cars, the people walking, the sound of rain falling down, the thunder, the screams of people on thrill rides, the sound of your parent’s voice, the laughter of your children, the chit-chat of your friends.

I’d be content just listening to them and not having to say a single word.

The other reason is – my day to day activities do not involve talking. I work as a computer geek in a software company and I have my tasks and I have my chores and I work alone so I don’t need to consult with anybody. Anything I wish to ask I do so through emails. I get back home and I watch some telly while dinner is in the oven (usually ready made meals from Iceland) and I only talk when my boyfriend gets home. Then I sit down and quietly engross myself in a new book or read a manga 🙂


    1. I did not say anything yet about the cuddly cats I caress silently or the wonderful smells I let out after eating broccoli! I wish I had no sense of smell! Too bad it’s associated with taste 🙂

  1. I suppose now I should have just left my comment and not read the back and forth between you and Prinsesa. Now my breakfast is ruined with the thought of my olfactory nerves being bombarded with your ‘wonderful’ smells of anal broccoli release.

    Anyway, good reasons for your choice of hearing.

    1. ROFL! Tom! You should not worry, the smell dissipates quite quickly 🙂 and next year make it about – which would it be better: no sense of smell or no sense of touch!

      1. Are you going to do it next year? If so, I need your question to add to the list. It is in February so only room for 28 questions. Do you want your suggestion to be the question?

      2. Yes, I’m going to take part and 🙂 I have a better one:
        If you could be anyone in the world for a day, who would you be?

      3. I should compose a list of all the previous questions we have used for both memes and honesty. That way no questions would be repeated and I think this questions has already been used. I will check on that for you unless you want to… Memes have been in December and last year’s 31 Days were in May. Okay, that is a bit much for you so I will do it!

      4. Be right with you. I’m going to compile the list now for all to see but I will email you a copy first. Also tomorrow I have added a twist to the dares.

  2. Oh my, that broccoli comment xD I think maybe it’s time for you to switch up the routine, as far as lifestyle goes. Maybe some video blogging will help you use that rusting voice of yours haha. But I agree, between the two I would keep hearing over voice.

    1. That’s the first thing that came to my mind when I thought about “Silent” (but deadly) :)) Video blogging? Never tried it! I think nobody would want to see a girl that is not as cute as a tiny japanese girl wearing a bikini and doing cosplay! Plus my singing sucks!

      1. You know what? I WOULD WATCH IT. I think tiny asian girls are overrated anyway. lmao…singing has nothing to do with anything though. I suck at singing too…you don’t see me backing out of a rap battle when I go karaoke! ;D

  3. A really good answer, I think this question will really depend on each individual’s personal way of life – it’s always interesting to see what people value more. Thanks for your answer, it was great!
