Episode #25: Laryngitis


When last we left our intrepid hero he had slipped through a hole in the fabric of the universe. Fortunately a friend of his was able to darn it and get thing back on track again.

Our hero has been performing in Un-Scripted’s Theater: The Musical, making use of his superhuman knowledge of playwrights and his less-than-human singing abilities. Last weekend he headed into a grueling string of three performances on back-to-back days.

A short time into the performance on Thursday, our hero realized his character would have to explode in yelling rage at some point in the show. He immediately began pounding Slippery Elm as a preemptory strike against Ripped-To-Shreds-Voice Monster. The moment came and our hero was only visited by the Slightly-Ripped-Voice Monsterling.

He moved through the next two shows without much difficulty, and then spent an enjoyable Sunday with supergirlfriend. Monday, however, our hero’s throat was attacked by Laryngitis Man! Oh no! His stronghold on our hero’s throat has strengthened with each passing day leaving him unable to speak and feeling like he has barbed wire in his larynx.

But that’s not all! Now he’s been hit by Unbelievable-Sinus-Pressure Girl, often the precursor of Sinus-Infection Woman whom he hopes not to have to come to blows with. Unfortunately one of his biggest weapons against Unbelievable-Sinus-Pressure Girl, Sudafed, only strengthens Laryngitis Man.

While our hero having completely lost his voice is somewhat frustrating, it’s lead to many humorous situations, including this blog post on Experiment Farm, which our hero admits he find highly amusing for reasons he can’t quite explain.

How will he defeat these two valiant foes?
Will he be able sing in time for the show Thursday night?
And most importantly…
Will his teeth survive all this honey he’s drinking in warm water?

Find out the answers to these important questions and more in the next episode of
Our Intrepid Hero
