I have a voice that I generally use to talk to Jane, my Jane voice. I have a different voice I generally use to talk to Maggie the Dog, my Maggie voice. But sometimes I use my Jane voice to talk to Maggie or my Maggie voice to talk to Jane.
No big deal, neither one insists on exclusive rights to the voice.
But how about this? When I talk to Jane in the Maggie voice, I often slip up and call her Maggie. It works the other way too, I call Maggie Jane when talking to her in my Jane voice.
Maybe someday I will have a neuroscientist reader and he can explain this.
A couple times I’ve called Jane “Frank”, which is my little brother’s name. I probably need a psychiatrist to explain that one.
