What does your telephone voice say about you?

When I hear what my voice sounds like on the phone, I think ... ok ... good. Calm, cool, and collected. Until the little voices in the background pop up and screaming ensues. Then I sound like a crazed banshee.

But when I am operating on little sleep (like this morning ... worked until 4 am this morning to get work finished for the week ... yes, I am crazy), I get that quality of tone in my voice. That tone that says "yes, I'm tired ... but I sound DARN sexy!!"

I have been told by many admirers (yeah ... ok .... my ex-boyfriend and Ace .... oh yeah, and my college admirer/best boy friend) that I sound really sexy. That my voice is really low. I liken myself to Kathleen Turner on her best days ... not the gravelly-sounding Kathleen Turner of today. The Jessica Rabbit Kathleen Turner.

Do I really sound like her? Nah. Probably not.

But I got to try out the sexy Kathleen voice on our executive senior pastor on the phone this morning. And it doesn't hurt matters that I think he is the cat's meow.

And that is how I will play it in my mind for weeks to come.

Well, I hate my telephone voice. Actually, I hate the telephone, period. I never answer it. Unless I think it's a business call, in which case I'm all, "Empowering Youth" in a sing-songy greeting.

Good thing there's caller id;)

sweetness..he gets around! Pointed me out in the middle of a crowded stadium and mouthed "I need to call you"...tee hee.
my tele voice is loud and obnoxious, generally I'm screaming at someone or they are screaming in the background.
Happy Saturday friend!

I only have "that" voice when I'm sick. I also take advantage of "that" voice to sing the low parts of every song I can think of. LOL!

I have been accused of the exact same thing. Here I thought I was answering the phone in a very calm, peaceful way, and the secretary of our school thought she'd dialed an 800 number. I wonder what other misconceptions about us are floating around? And, so much for peaceful. Now I'll just be brazen. Like I feel inside.

The Lovely She, that is me!

I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
