It's that season again.
Whilst there might be an argument for a paid artist to struggle through their act whilst coughing and sneezing over the audience, is it the done thing to bring a bad cold, or man flu to a singaround or folk club, either as a floor-singer or as audience?
We had one last night who presented himself as a bit of a hero for turning up at all. He had to give up on one of his songs after the first few bars because he couldn't reach the notes.
If I get his cold, I wish he hadn't turned up at all.
On the other hand, I suppose it is inevitable that we'll all get it somewhere at some stage. Supermarkets are probably the worst for spreading cold viruses.
