The first time
I heard a recording
of my voice,
without the deeper,
lower frequency vibrations
enhanced by traveling
I was so upset I didn’t talk
for two days.
Imagine the shock
when I first heard myself sing.
So much for the,
“become a rock star”career path.

so much truth. so so much truth. Lolol. Does everyone hate their own voice or is it just usReplyDelete
I'm not sure Michael. Glad you got a chuckle though.Delete
It's funny how strange and almost surreal our own voices sound to us when we actually here them recorded, and not from the "inside" as we are used to. Sorry about your singing aspirations being side-lined, but there's always the writing, the humor & the one-liners my friend!ReplyDelete
Hahaha - thank you my friend! :o)Delete
I hate hearing myself on recordings... my voice sounds so small and childlike... which to me, doesn't sound like me at all!ReplyDelete
I sound...dorky. :o(Delete
ha hah nicely done, only a few people have the guts to laugh at oneself and in my opinion they are very brave!ReplyDelete
Thank you Vandana. You know, those willing to laugh at themselves will never cease to be amused. That's a paraphrase from someone I can't remember.Delete
*smiles* at your honesty! LOLReplyDelete
Glad yoou got a chuckle Jinksy.Delete
lol I hate hearing mine too, but what the heck at my zooReplyDelete
If you really wanted to be a singer- sorry. I remember not recognizing my voice as mine the first time I heard it. Strange.ReplyDelete
Lol, thanks Mary.Delete
Quite entertaining and rather wise...ReplyDelete
Thank you Berowne.Delete
Nice 'take'. We're so often not quite what we think we are, yet rarely do those who know us, share our disappointments.ReplyDelete
That is very true S. Czar. Good point.ReplyDelete
But your rock star still lives within , friend !ReplyDelete
Thank you my friend.Delete
Oh I too, know that feeling all so well!ReplyDelete
It would be a lot worse it I sang! lolReplyDelete
My first effort!
Nice to meet you ~ Eddie
Duet doo-wop, Eddie? lolDelete
I think we would sing a very nice duet - is there any space left on the tape . . . and your surname I see is Bach . . . I love J S Bach. . . . any relation? lolDelete
Yes! So nice that you like Uncle Johann! ;-)Delete
Dou you hear Bach often or Offenbach?Delete
sorry . . . . . could not resist!
Just one of my amazing music jokes like:
Q. What did Mozart do as soon as her die?
A. Started de-composing!
Are you not entering this week?

:o) Have a great summer Brian!Delete
Love this Mary....made me smile. I think we all hate the way our voice sounds on tape. :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks Carrie, I guess you're right.Delete
