Working during my overtime day with a cold killed my voice, meaning I couldn’t teach today. Sorry NOVA!
I did my best to recover – lots of sleep, lots of tea and vitamin C drinks, and I binge watched Married With Children.
MWC was one of my favourite shows as a teenager: in addition to laughing at the continuous failures of Al Bundy, I had a huge crush on Kelly. The show is still funny now, although I found myself getting really annoyed by the excessive laugh track. My only other complaint was that they couldn’t get the rights to the song “Love and Marriage” to open the episode on the DVD release, so they simply dubbed in some generic music over the title cards which is pretty weak.
My voice recovered enough from yesterday to the point where I could make enough intelligible sounds to teach English. To ensure I made it through the day, I drank nothing but hot tea and vitamin loaded energy drinks. Fortunately in Japan both of these are very easy to come by.
My cold is getting worse. I had a lot of sinus pressure making me feel like my eyeballs were going to explode. Thanks to the wonders of daytime cold medicine (from Canada), I managed to survive the day.
Also, the streak of good kids classes has now extended to 4 good classes in 4 days!! This is a pleasant surprise.
