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 🙂
