There is one thing you do not need to practice.
Riding a bike.
Everyone says you never forget how to ride a bike.
No need to practice.
I can ride a bike anytime I want.
What about Whispering?
Every now and again I whisper for no reason at all.
I just need the practice. Imagine how embarrassing it would be if I couldn’t whisper.
In all the quiet places, imagine going in with my normal voice,like a person with a packet of chips at a classical concert.
If I wasn’t so stupid I would be permanently embarrassed.
So I’ve been told. Many times.
I could give you the exact number but I would need to look it up in my archive.
But you can say anything with words can’t you?
When I whisper randomly four things happen.:
- the other person always whispers back.
- Both people continue whispering for no reason.
- The other person asks “Why are we whispering?
- Laughter is compulsory when question 3 is asked.
Allergy to Whispers
I still force myself to practice even though I am allergic to whispers.
It has an effect on me worse than the loudest noise ever has.
My skin crawls, I feel a tightness in my back and tension in my internal organs.
I want to violently scream at them to stop.
Yet my random whispers create a moment of joy for someone.
For a brief moment, their problems are just a little bit less.
Time to Step Up.
Get involved. Yes I mean you.
Try out some random whispers.
Tell me what happened and create those random moments of joy.
Help me, please. Don’t let me be the last of the random whisperers.
I am allergic and my whispers will slowly kill me. Just like they killed my father and his father before him.
If I do one thing in this life, let it be that I pass on the power of random whispers.
What are your best or worst whispering experiences?
