An Intrusion of Cockroaches, huh? Are you saying something about me here? Or am I being paranoid.
Something I should confess about myself. I do suffer from a little paranoia.
Indeed I can be kinda paranoid about the word paranoid.
Well not the word paranoid. The Word Paranoia!
It took me a while to learn how to spell it, see. Those three vowels on the end throw me. I had to make up a mnemonic to remind me of how to spell it.
The mnemonic was: Oh, I Am so Paranoid…
See I took the O from oh
the I from I and the
A from am
OIA - the last three letters of paranoia.
Now I feel quite secure with it. Generally.
Until those moments of paranoa (sic) creep in and I’m paranoid that I’ve misspelt it.
Hopefully see you tonight.
I’ll be the one without a collective.
PS I reckon the collective for collectives would be: A redundancy of collectives…
