I'll put it down as a "W"

So, for the last two weeks I've gotten progressively sicker. I'm now in that lovely state of bronchitis that we asthmatics so love, because the constricted airways aren't enough fun--must have more!

This means tired, coughing, and, well, not breathing. Now add...wait for it...

Yup---I had a performance!!!

My legato sucked. I couldn't phrase worth a damn. But the mezzo pianos !were!, and the fortissimos !were!, and all the bits in between, and pitch was mostly true. I may have coughed my lungs inside out after, but I'll take the praise tonight for what it was--'cause that was one of the most difficult physical feats I've ever pulled off.

So now I'll sip my shot of Rare Breed, and then go to bed. I am beat.

Hey, Lungs! You are NOT the boss of me!!

Brava that is wonderful that you did so well. I hope the price is smaller than it should be.

*cheer* for pulling it off and thoughts for quick healing. Sometimes ya just gotta take them lungs out behind the woodshed for a talkin'-to. ;)

You deserve a medal for even attempting it. I had to cancel 2 juries duing college due to tonsilitis and associated symptoms, so as far as I'm concerned, your singing through respiratory gunk and actually succeeding in some way is nearly heroic. Brava!
