This is a repeat Daily Prompt, so I will repeat what I said (literally said) two years ago when it was first posted:
Here’s the answer to today’s Daily Prompt – What do you find more unbearable: watching a video of yourself, or listening to a recording of your voice? Why?
So there you have it….a touch of a whine, a bit nasal, and kind of hoarse. I remember the first time I heard my own voice on tape was when I was in second grade. We had a big reel to reel tape recorder in the classroom and for some reason we were recording our voices. When my voice was played back someone said “You sound like a boy.” Obviously it left an impression if now at age 58 I can still remember the incident. I am always a little appalled when hearing my own voice on my answering machine, thinking how can I possibly sound like that? I can’t do much to change it though, I suppose I could take elocution lessons to rid myself of my New York t’s and d’s and r’s- but I fear it is too late. A friend used to say I sounded like Fran Drescher on the show The Nanny.
