I looked after my body today, dosing myself with a range of liquids, plus some sunshine during an early afternoon stroll to the library (yes, and back!). Since this morning, I rotated through water, café au lait, water, water, hot green tea, water, martini (and that’s where I am; I anticipate more water in the near future…ho hum).
This regime was spurred by an almost-throat tickle, and a strange backnote to my voice. Let’s hope it is not an incipient sore throat.

Gargle with warm water with a pinch of salt. This should help fix your throat tickle. If it doesn’t, you might want to see a doctor. Streptococci are halophiles, so the salt water doesn’t bother them.
Hope this advice is already too late, and your tickle is gone.
