The Voice

I know by the subject, you may think I am talking about that television show where judges twirl around on fancy chairs, but alas, that is not the case. I am talking about hearing voices. It is not just my imagination, either. These are real voices, and sometimes I even know the human behind the voice. 

I am talking about what the Lady Servant refers to as “speakerphone”. This is a crazy invention – I hear it in the car and on the office. Let’s say I am sitting on the couch, minding my own business. All of a sudden, I may hear two voices coming from the office. But I have not seen or heard anyone come in, and believe me, I would know if they had.

I begin my investigation by slowly making my way into the office (by “slowly making my way” clearly I mean “I dart off the couch as fast as possible, tossing blankets and pillows on the floor, and race in to see what is going on.“)  I see the Lady Servant and nobody else. Yet, I hear their voices (typically only one at a time). Lady Servant is usually sitting at her desk, doing something magical on her laptop, while also talking to whoever’s voice is coming through.

It is weird. I am starting to get used to it, but it is still very strange for me to go into a room, hear two people but only see one of them. I do occasionally bark, just to make sure speakerphone person hears me, too. (When it is someone I know, I like to say hi.)

In the car it is even worse, as there is no escaping it. I hear a shrill ring, then a booming voice through all of the speakers. I feel like I should be on Charlie’s Angels or something. I will tell you that every time it happens, it spooks me. Even though I have heard it many times, it is still weird. Don’t you agree?
