Paranoia

“Did you lock the car? Did you turn the AC on before you left so the dog doesn’t die? Did you wrap the leftovers in foil so they don’t taste like the fridge? Can you walk me to my car when I leave tonight so I don’t get kidnapped? Make sure you lock the door when you leave my house. You shouldn’t double dip in the peanut butter, we’re going to get sick. You shouldn’t eat that off the table, they don’t clean these, we’re going to get Covid. I got Covid because you ate that brownie crumb off the table in the coffee shop.”
