3. For the first few days you sound like a teen boy whose voice is breaking.

13. You'll try and get on with your life as normal but every time you meet someone new you can't get over how they may never know what your real voice sounds like.


14. Or, every time you start speaking to someone new with your husky voice, you have to begin with an explanation of how this isn't how you normally sound.

15. After a while you'll grow to like your new husky voice and start wishing that it wouldn't get better so quickly.

18. For a few days after recovering from your flu you will mourn the loss of your sexy, husky voice.
