a condition l have called dyspraxia similar to dys-

and sometimes l miss the last letters of words due
sometimes to the speed my brain (yes l do have
one) is working basically it means “I am playing
all the right notes but not necessarily in the right
order” to quote Eric Morecambe. If my malaprop-
isms amuse you that’s fine by me we all need a
laugh. The word comes from Mrs Malaprop a

uses words in this way.
