I couldn't talk almost all day (I finally started to clear up at about 7pm.) so I was walking around with a notepad writing to people to explain things.
I had to go to the bank and deposit a couple checks and i handed the girl behind the desk this note which she read and laughed (in retrospect I wonder if she thought I was going to rob the place).
I had to use my note method at the post office, McGlynn & McGlynn law office, Fazoli's (I didn't have time to go home for lunch.), and with people at work.
Today I can talk again, but am a little gravely. Although I feel worse today than I did yesterday.
