Welcome To Medical Central!

Between mid morning and now I've half filled my office waste paper bin with used tissues, and developed a husky rasp that sounds like Brenda Vaccaro's waaaaay butcher brother. To some who know me this may suggest a greasy palmed orgy of self-loving but in truth (especially given that I'm at work at The Big Christian Charity) it actually means head cold. Summer head cold to be precise. Maybe this is why I felt so foul yesterday, with the sinus pain and all, but today it has come on like a steam roller. 11am this morning I felt quite normal, now I'm a mucus machine.

I hate summer colds, they feel so inappropriate you know? Who wants to rug up and act feeble with a mug of hot honey and lemon when it's swimwear weather?

Hey, aren't these medical malady posts fun? As you were... sniff.

I know what you mean. Isn't it strange how quickly we can be hit by our illnesses?

I remember once playing the second piano part in the orchestra for a musical (70, Girls, 70, a Kander and Ebb show). I felt right as rain until the lights went down for Act II. I sneezed once and by the end of the Entr'acte my face, music and keyboard were covered in snot. I felt near unconcious and whenever I had to play, the snot just dripped from me. My keyboard was head-to-head with the MD's and he couldn't believe it.

Thanks for the comments everyone, sorry to take so long to respond but I stayed in bed or on the couch all of yesterday. Man, I haven't had a cold this foul in YEARS.

Q, I'm not sure what's going on but I just read both you're comments. I'll email you.
