It is undeniable. After a few observations about the state of my throat, I can say with certainty that I have Attack of the Crud. My voice sounds not unlike a frog.
The timing of this mucosal blitz is rather inconvenient, as I have an audition tomorrow, I will be singing selections from Mozart's Exsultate, jubilate on Sunday, and I have a big audition coming up. So, to combat this untimely assailant, I'm opting for complete vocal rest today along with an assortment of the following:
- hot tea
- vitamin C
My outlook is positive and my fingers are crossed that I can knock this off in a day, or so. Wish me luck, please. I really need it.
