sore throat

i kept waking up last night and swallowing to gauge the pain and thinking to myself don't be strep! don't be strep!

see i have this phobia about strep ever since i had it on my 35th birthday. it was the worst throat pain i have ever experienced and i think it must have chewed up some stuff in there because i've had an intermittent irritation and dry cough ever since.

but, happily (!), it would seem that my throat was just the first stop for whatever bug this is that is now migrating down to my chest. and fortunately i don't have to say much in class today. my voice is at a subsonic frequency so they would have a hard time hearing me i think.

i'm not running a fever so i know this isn't SARS.
