Voicemail is fun. It allows for not only the actual words of the message to be delivered but also the inflection, tone, timbre and speed of delivery make their own message. As much as the actual words.

I got this voicemail from an employee.

Here is the text of the message:

“Hi Jon. Um, its, a urgent that you look at the computer. There’s another one for November 20th. OK.”

Sounds pretty boring. Listen to the actual message:

Is she in the desert, dying of heat exaustion and needs me to look at her blog for her last desperate message?

Has she been crying from a broken heart and hopes that my computer contains the answer to her longing?

Is she abducted? Does her captor have her at knifepoint?

No. She has laryngitis.
