I have developed one of the most uncomfortable illnesses known to modern medicine: a summer cold. It was 90 degrees yesterday with 90% humidity, and just stepping outside was torture. I could not breathe.
The cold also means my throat is raw, and that means that I have not been able to work on my voice. I hadn’t blogged about it yet — one of those things on the to-do list — but suffice to say I’ve started self-training myself to speak in a female voice with some online materials. However, when one’s throat is raw, one does not strain the throat by trying to pitch it around. Also, it’s hard to take deep breaths with clogged nasal passages.
Now excuse me while I take some decongestant and curl up in a corner. Wait, no, I mean go to work. Sigh.
