Losing my voice
Just now I was getting ready for bed, and when starting to hum something, I realized my voice is mostly gone. My range is down to less than an octave, in the bottom of my normal bass-baritone range. It's been several years since a cold made me lose my voice like this, and it's hard on me because I love to sing. But it was probably singing that did it. After getting home earlier tonight, I took my car to do a little shopping. As usual, I was singing along to the old crooners, and I likely exerted my vocal cords too much.
