I’m gonna stutter on the T’s. I always do. Bob feels the sweat in his palms. He can’t breathe and his knees wobble. I would like 20 dollars back in small bills. Could you give me 20 back. 20 back please. Please, 20 back. Small bills.
One by one the counter moves closer to him. Only one person in front of him now. 20 back. Small bills. Yeah, that’s great. That can say. Look between her eyes.
Bob walks to the counter with his groceries in hand. It had been a nice day so far. He slept well, and had taken his vitamins. Those helped he found out. It’s his turn. Can’t breathe! Can’t breathe! Look between her eyes. Looooong woooords. Here we go. God damn it.
Anything else sir?
Twue- t- ….tuen- aaah God damn I would like 20 bucks in small bills, please.
A few seconds pass. A million years. The entire store freeze. Time freeze. Only Bob is moving. And only he knows what’s going on. It’s like the movie Inception where time freezes. TICK. Bob picks up his phone. It’s from Stuttering Habits. Yesterday, he signed up for a 10 day email course on mindset. It’s the first email. He believes he can relieve his stuttering with the right mindset. This first email is about pressure and mindset. Yay!
The email reads:
”When in immense pressure remember that you are like everybody else. And everybody else also stutter sometimes. Many people does not speak fluent all day every day. Visualize what you’re going to say, and remember to have enough air in your lungs. Without air, no words.” Okay, okay I can do that.
Bob fills his lungs with air. He closes his eyes. I’m like everybody else. I’m like everybody else. I would like to have 20 dollars back in small bills, please.
Yes, sorry, I would like to have 20 dollars back in small bills, please.
Here you go. What a nice deep voice you have, sir.
Have a great day.
Same to you.
Awesome. It really works. He picks up his phone and reads the email again. I can’t wait until tomorrow for the next email.
Outside the store the sun shines on Bob. He feels the warmth. It’s almost like the sun shines through him. Oh wait it does. With Stuttering Habits your conversations shine one email at a time.
