As a matter of fact, I never thought I would find the courage and the nerve to post a puzzle like this one. If it doesn't get me stoned, it will get me downvoted by myopic people. I hope that some of you might find it worth their precious while to throw a bit of thinking at it. There is a hidden pattern in this paragraph, and I was quite amused when I first saw it. Please don't assume that I am writing horrid nonsense or that my mind has fallen asleep. Look meticulously for related words that have been altered in some odd way.

  • $\begingroup$ "related words that have been altered in some odd way" - does that refer to e.g. "meticulously" instead of "carefully" and "myopic" instead of "short-sighted"? $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Mar 6 '15 at 11:22

Any chance that hidden pattern isn't very pronounced?

Each sentence seems to contain an anagram of one of the words showing up in that sentence.

More precisely:

never - nerve
doesn't - stoned
worth - throw
was - saw
please - asleep
related - altered
