All panic, no disco

At less than 20 hours until my reading for 65 high school kids, I have nearly no voice. WTF? I'm not even sick, just silent.

Home remedies I have tried so far:
--green tea
--chamomile tea
--gargling with salt water
--frosting (not really a remedy; I just found this cache of leftover frosting)

Any other suggestions for me? At this point, I can't even muster the voice to call to cancel the event. It's going to be extra lame if I have to get someone else to do it!!

A Hot shower sometimes works (singing in the shower optional). Also sleep helps.

Did you try hot water with lemon and honey? I've heard that actors sometimes drink that before going out on stage. At any rate, it's very soothing.

Um, I think there's a setting on the MacBook where you can get it to say anything you type in with this crazy computerized voice (v. similar to Stephen Hawking's "voice") It's v. fun.

Whatever you do, don't whisper. That makes it worse.

I have an idea: charades?
