So you think losing my voice is funny?

Okay, it is. But it's hard to get it back when I can't seem to get any rest. I am a magnet for questions and conversations, both at work and at home. At home, at least they ask me something to my face and try to limit it to yes/no type questions. At work, however, they seem to get a kick out of hearing my struggle to squeak and squawk out an answer and often the person is not in front of me. Today, however, I decided to do something different and bratty(I think I'm feeling better). I stopped at the store on the way to work and bought some throat lozenges (not bratty, but I need them) a pad of paper, colored markers, and a bicycle horn. I debated on whether to get the more-expensive-but-nerdily-cool horn, or the cheaper-but-really-annoying horn. Needless to say, I think the annoyance factor is more effective for the clowns I work with, so I went with the cheaper one. Do you have any creative ways for dealing with jokesters?
