I got a new job. Yay! I also got a bad cold yesterday. I sound like a demon on Supernatural whenever I talk, and not in the sexy way. I'm supposed to start some intense training on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Any special advice? I'm rockin' some Emergen-C and hot tea. My manager commented on how "not chipper" I sounded when she offered me the job and I don't want to blow this already. : (

What I always use: Hot water with cayenne, fresh ginger, agave and lemon. If you drink whiskey and have some available, it's nice to add a splash (numbs the throat a little.) My mom made me drink something similar when I was a kid. Also, gargling with salt water.

I'm a singer, so I'm constantly trying to get throat problems under control. The number one thing you can do is drink lots of water, it gets everything lubricated. I love to drink hot water with fresh ginger. I buy these tubes of ginger paste and put that in a tea ball and steep in hot water with a little sugar. It is really tasty and great for your throat.

I can't get enough of this stuff when I have a sore throat. With lots of fresh ginger and agave or maple syrup.

And congratulations on the new job!

I always find gurgling with salt water helps. It tastes disgusting, but my throat always feels better afterward.

I second this (and second the congrats). It tastes sickly sweet, but it really works.
