I just got sucked into a surprisingly manly giggle
My plan to feel better by watching The Sopranos non-stop is working quite well. I have also decided to forestall my speaking pain by cutting off conversations before I feel any pain. Today I talked to maybe 5 people, each for less than 10 minutes. This may work.
5 people is a lot for me these days. It felt good to talk to them on my cell phone.
