Tired of that irritating, nattering spouse or cow-orker ? Excessively chatty friend or realtive ?

Help is at hand. Slip them a Laryngitis pill. Looking just like a Tic-Tac, breath mint or throat sweet, they contain a virulent culture of a virus which causes non-transmissible viral larynigitis. Wait a few days and .... " " - nothing above a faint whisper.

Available from a pharmacy near you, in Three Day, One Week, One month, and I've-been-married-six-years-extra-long-lasting sizes.

       No, I think stress relief was apt. No good waiting for a few days, though, needs to be fast acting. And there must be chemicals that would achieve the same effect, shirley, preferably without any long lasting and illegal side effects?

       This sounds great, I could slip one to my husband, and perhaps he could finally get some time off from work. Plus, I wouldn't have to listen to the same stories 20 times. A big crusty (and hopefully not throat harming) croissant to you.

       You've missed the true use for these: taking them yourself to get out of that presentation or public speaking chore that you've been dreading. I'd have one every morning with my coffee.

       But they've all gone to so much trouble ..... how can we disappoint them ..... the rows of eager faces, the burning torches, the shining, polished jackboots, the glint of firelight off the blued steel of the rifle bolts ..... we can hear them calling .... we speak ...."We are your leaders ! Rise up and follow us, we will lead you to victory and freedom ! " .... the cheers, the marching feet, the rumble of the panzer tracks .....   

       Oh, sorry Nurse, were we making a noise ? We were just dozing again.... what, time for our pill again ? Already ? How the days fly by in here .....

       I would use them myself so I could sound like Tom Waits.

       That is EVIL.

       Do like it. A man has not only a right to be healthy, but also a right to be sick. However, my memories of Laryngitis are not the most pleasant, -- I almost died twice, of suffocation because of Laryngitis, fortunately, resuscitated.
