I'm now in week 3 of a stupid head cold. It's not serious, just annoying. I'm told a virus is going around that lasts and lasts. Apparently it bit me. What does that mean for me? I constantly need to have kleenex at my disposal, and lavatories - for all the liquids I am downing. I have cough drops and prescription cough syrup. I have no singing voice, and often my speech is gravelly, similar to Rochester, the supporting actor that appeared on the Jack Benny show years ago. Here's the big downer: going to bed at 8:30 every night, only to get up in the morning and feeling the same. It's beyond getting "old."
