Other People's Words

I've made my living with my voice for most of my life.  Not just the sound emissions from my vocal chords, but my very means of self-expression.  That's another meaning of the word voice:  to express.

My voice has been sold many, many times.

I just heard from a friend who told me about possible voice jobs, and my immediate visceral reaction was "NO!"

What I actually said was, "Thank you for thinking of me,".  But my entire body screamed, "NO!  NONONONONONOFUCKNO!"

I'm no longer interested in making my voice the conduit for other people's words.

That's nearly over now.  And it needs to be over.
