For the past few days I have been playing Scramble CE on my phone so much, that when I tried to call my mum on the phone last night, I physically couldn’t for a moment because the digits weren’t connected on the number grid.

When I close my eyes now I see not darkness but D-E-A-R, E-A-R, R-A-D, D-A-R-E, A-R-E, R-E-A-D morphing into and out of each other. I can no longer look at a game of tic tac toe without muttering to myself that XXX and OOO are not words and therefore should not be linked.

Someone save me.
