This cold started as a scratchy throat, which gave way to an eye twitch. Then, I sneezed and the sore throat disappeared. Now my chest hurt. I began coughing. I coughed for 5 seconds, stopped for 5 seconds, coughed for 5 seconds, and so on, all of Saturday night. I did not sleep. I only coughed. Then, on Sunday morning I began sneezing, and I sneezed for approximately 8 consecutive hours. I pulled my back out. The sneezing stopped long enough to sit in a hot bath, which made my body temperature go up to 101.5, which gave me a headache, so I spent the next 4 hours with a cold rag on my head. I had a pint of NyQuil and a shot of whisky and fell into a hallucinogenic sleep, where I saw unicorns, giant rats, Andrew Ridgeley, Valerie Perrine, lots of pizzas and a guy named Phil Turnbull. I woke up this morning, feeling like I might be over it, made a pot of coffee, took a hot shower, and started sneezing repeatedly. I can't see too well and I am starting to resemble Red Skelton. I am not a good patient.
That said, I will have my favorite records of 2018 written up and posted, as soon as I feel up to it. In the meantime, please use this time and space to tell us your favorite records of 2018.
