My microphone has ED

Warning, I feel a PG-13 post coming on, viewer discretion is advised.

Yesterday, after weeks, months, possibly years, of keeping it up (and very satisfactorily, if I do say so my self) my mic in drive-through just couldn't do it any more. He gave up and collapsed. Luckily we were right at the end, so there was no big loss, but it was still disappointing. He just laid there. All sad and limp. And he sill worked, I just had to hold his head up if I want to use him. We have been pretty slow, so I don't know why he chose now to quit on me, but oh well, I guess I will just have to get a new one.

Ok, that is about as dirty as I can get right now. Here is the real story:

Yesterday my console mic that I use in drive up broke. He still sufficiently amplified my voice, but he could not hold himself up like he used to.

He looks like the picture above, but with more colorful so-called buttons. He is on a bendable, pose able neck and the mic part (head) reminds me of HAL from 2001, minus the evil red light. We get along pretty good, except that I had to keep my hand wrapped around the head in order for the people to hear me.

Well, the Doctor came today and spent his sweet time fixing my Mic. Which was fine with me, it got me out of some work. I got to read Eleven On Top. The Doctor gave Mic a new neck and adjusted the volume and now everything is better! Yay! Three cheers for the the Doctor! No more speaking into my hand, perfecting my Darth Vader impression.

We are back to frolicking in the fields of drive-through. All is well.

Oh, Noah will be so disappointed that your Darth Vader impression is not perfected. Congrats on the new mic. It is always nice when your Mic can hold it's own.

Maybe you should keep some Cialis available at work. Mic might just pep right up...well, at least for 36 hours.
