and when i speak dogs howl

Some alien sickness has taken over my body, particularly my throat which sounds more raspy than normal and low and growling with squeaking gasps. I am tired and achy and feel as though I've gargled with nails. Baby Kitty meows as though it pains her when I speak and I can only imagine that somewhere dogs are howling.

Also, Zicam is disgusting and Halls Breezers cough drops are saving my life.

I hope you are well and that no dogs near you are howling.
