Perpetrating A Parapraxis

"Perpetrating A Parapraxis” is the 4th in my Tom's Autumn Rambles series of original copyright press releases sent from my happy home in the sunny south of Portugal.


Jacob cut a forlorn figure. He sported a beauty of a black eye, a real shiner. Ludwig eased himself on to the adjoining bar stool and eyed the injury. “It was the wife did it,” said Jacob, without waiting to be asked, “I perpetrated a silly parapraxis.” Ludwig was none the wiser but waited to be enlightened.

We were planning to visit the in-laws and went together to book our travel at the bus station,” proceeded Jacob. “ There was a buxom blonde on the ticket desk. I meant to say 'Two tickets for Pittsburgh' but instead said 'Two pickets for Tittsburgh'. You see a silly parapraxis. That's when my wife smacked me.”

Aaahh!” said Ludwig, understanding dawning, “It was all over a simple slip of the tongue.”

That's what I said,” said Jacob, “A silly parapraxis.”

Ludwig touched his old friend's arm. “What an amazing coincidence, just the same happened with me only last week..” “You don't have a black eye,” soured Jacob, but, warming to the idea of a sufferer-in-arms perked up noticeably, “So what happened with you?”

You'll recall,” started Ludwig, “That I and my wife returned to our home town in Bavaria to celebrate the Oktoberfest? We spent a splendid week of lederhosen revelry, stein swigging and old country hospitality. The week culminated with a grand gala dinner. Only when we arrived at the landgasthaus was it announced that the special guest of honour would be the German chancellor, Frau Merkel. All guests were introduced to her on arrival. When it came my turn to shake the hand of the bundeskanzler I approached with the intention of saying 'Good evening ma'am, a pleasure to meet you' … but instead I said … 'You ruined my friggin' country!' ”

He laughed, grasping Jacob's shoulder, “You see a silly parpar … parax ... oh slip of the tongue.”

Jacob nodded sagely, “I'll drink to that,” and ordered two schnapps. “To perpetrating a parapraxis. Prost!”

POWER POINT - “Choose your words carefully. Slips can have dire consequences.”

I am Tom Riach. I live and write in the sunny south of Portugal.

It took me some years to establish myself in business but I believe that in life only the most resolute of tryers will prevail and after several years of a bank account in a permanent state of cardiac arrest my perseverance began to pay!

I became a successful Business Consultant, Investment Adviser and award-winning Salesperson and Marketing Professional and I coined the term 'Creative Solutions' to describe my work in devising and implementing innovative approaches to situations in business, commerce and industry (some call it touble-shooting). From my successes I grew my own group of small companies.

By later years I had realised that sheer sweat and toil did not represent the smartest or swiftest routes to wealth. Entrepreneurs, I observed, had always existed able to create fortunes from little apparent effort and I became increasingly fascinated by this phenomenon. I set out to emulate this approach and such was my success that I was able at an early age to 'retire' to the tranquility and calm of South West France. I later moved on to Southern Portugal.

CONTACT ME – I'll be thrilled to hear from you!

The life of which you dream is HERE within your grasp!
