Inklings had a recent post where she suggested people say the title with a lispy voice like Jan Brady.  I read her post and indeed could have read it with a lispy voice.  I recently had some extensive dental work, which has resulted in a temporary lisp. I was hoping that I would get used to this new condition and be able to overcome this lisp, but as the days go by I am unfortunately seeing that I will not be able to overcome it and that I will have this lisp for the next 4 months, at which point is the final stage of my dental work.  At first I thought about just staying home for 4 months, but now I have consigned myself to accepting it and hope that people have "washed their own windows" sufficiently and will not comment derogatorily to me about it.
In a way it's kind of interesting to me to talk to people and to see the inquizitive look come to their face as they listen to me talk. I really don't worry as much about the lisping as I do about the times when I go to open my mouth to say something and a drool of spit drops out of my mouth. :0+  It's going to be a long 4 months!

Ugh, I feel for you! I hope that they get everything corrected.

I've been there and done that. So sorry and I hope it gets better.
