I have a phobia.  My phobia is that someone with my name will become famous.  Someone that’s not me, that is.

Suddenly, I wouldn’t be on the front page of a Google search for my name; and whenever introduced to others, people would be more interested in tiresome name-based observations than in meeting me.  And generally, it would all be a bit shit.

So if you share my name, please shy away from the limelight.  There’s a good lad.
