So let me just tell you. If you have a cold, and you are already losing your voice, I really don't recommend doing the following:
1. Talking to your ESL program director for 30 minutes, then...
2. Teaching English for 2 hours, then...
3. Chatting on the phone with your sister-in-law's friend for 30 minutes on your way home about the logistics of running a half marathon, then...
4. Talking for another 50 minutes straight while on a late-night run with a friend.
My throat totally hurts and I sound like a man. I asked Christian if it was sexy and he said, "Shut up--Get away from me!" I take that as a no.
So I'm drinking a concoction of water, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, basil, and honey. Hey--I figure if they're all listed as helping a sore throat, then I might as well mix them all together, right? Christian says it smells nasty--too much vinegar. I say it tastes better than nasty airborne. Although I will admit there's too much vinegar. Ew.
But my throat feels better. Maybe because this is the longest I've gone without talking since 6:00pm today. Oops.
PS--Christian is watching Family Guy and I'm actually laughing. I can't stand when I laugh at programs that I can't stand!
