Love Hurts

Well, here it is, my Valentine's Day poem in glorious mono recording. The task was to read a passionate poem in a non-passionate way and I think my cold served me well.

There is nothing that you wouldn't want your kiddies to hear, except possibly for the doomladen, apathetic and yet irritable tone of voice. Come to think of it, they may have nightmares. So: not suitable for children or adults of a nervous disposition. (But no naughty words this time.)

What a lovely, lilting rhythm you have to this reading. (In the words of Borat: NOT.) Terrific addition to our rabbit hole romance compendium. And I agree, nearly as good as Hallmark. Nearly.

You sound particularly miserable on the first few lines. Very well done. I'm convinced you couldn't give a crap about the person you are speaking to. Excellent.

Thank you, pjd and pacatrue, you are both most kind!

Evil Editor said...

I predicted you couldn't make your voice sound dull. Okay, so I was wrong.

Love me tender, indeed, FH. You sound so very bothered by it all, so very businesslike, which was great!!

McKoala said...

I almost expected you to shout 'next'! at the end.

Aerin said...

Seriously, UK accent people. I tend to think any accent is romantic - but, agree with paca that you couldn't give a crap about the person you are speaking to -

I can hear that virus choking the music from your voice. Well done for not coughing and sneezing. Love me tender? Like you give a toss! Wonderfully unromantic and disengaged.

La- la-la-la-la-la-la………

You did a great job with this one. Like you couldn't wait to get over with the reading.

next up... a reading from the kama sutra ;) all part of FH's ongoing commitment to discourage all things love, marriage, and carriage.

fairyhedgehog said...

Bothered, business-like, dull, disengaged, discouraging, couldn't give a toss - oh dear! I was hoping to hide my true identity online.

Thank you all for your comments.

Hey — let's all throw ourselves off the nearest cliff now.

What's interesting about this is that I know someone who speaks like this all the time.

Chris Eldin said...

LOL! You know, I'm an Elvis fan, so this is somewhat blasephomous (I know that's not spelled correctly. I can only get to two syllables before I start making it up).
Funny one!!!
:-)

sylvia said...

Awesome, you sound so peeved! This is great.

I predicted you couldn't make your voice sound dull. Okay, so I was wrong.

LOL, high praise indeed ;)

fairyhedgehog said...

Blasphemous and peeved! The adjectives just keep rolling in.

No need to go throwing anyone off cliffs. I don't usually speak like this, honest!

freddie said...

You sound so miserable, like a kid being forced to recite on stage.

fairyhedgehog said...

I was so miserable but it was the cold.

I'll feel better soon.

Scott from Oregon said...

It sounded like you were counting coins from a sock...

fairyhedgehog said...

I have been thinking about putting our savings in a sock under the mattress...

Sarah Laurenson said...

Oh this was priceless. The pissed off, apathetic King done to a T.

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, Sarah.
