Just Your Typical Friday Night...

            So how did you spend your Friday night?  Did you go somewhere fabulous for dinner?  Did you go out on the town, drink too much, and dance until your feet hurt?  Same.  Oh wait...just kidding.  I stayed home and built a model of the human larynx.  I wish that this was a joke.  But in fact, it is reality.  For our voice disorders course, my classmates and I were charged with the impossible task of reconstructing the larynx out of household objects.  On Thursday we will bring our models to class where we will have a one-on-one, face-to-face test with our professor who will quiz us on each of the individual muscles, ligaments, cartilages, and bones along with each of their functions.  Sounds thrilling, huh?
The supplies.  Okay so I'm kidding with the wine...sort of.

The finished product.  Pretty impressive if I do say so myself.  If you would like one of these babies for a birthday gift or to put on your mantle I can churn them out for a very reasonable fee.

So if you have ever wondered what your larynx looks like, (because I know you all have), this is it!  Though this larynx is far prettier than the ones have I seen in real life, you get the idea. 

Yep, that is what the vocal folds look like.  All sparkly and colorful :-)
