Puzzling Paragraph

The Puzzler

RAY: Hi, we're back. You're listening to Car Talk with us, Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers, and we're here to discuss cars, car repair and the new Puzzler. And I'm going to read this just the way I got it. It came from someone named Robert Skidmore, and, like I said, I'm going to read it just the way I got it.

TOM: You read it, and if I like it, I won't do this...

RAY: He says, "OK, I sent this one to you to be put in the daily trivia. Since you didn't do that, I'll send it again. This time as a Puzzler. It'll probably be more fun to have people try to answer it after hearing it rather than after reading it anyway. The person trying to answer this puzzle must listen/look closely at the following paragraph." Now, you can't look, but you can listen.

TOM: Yeah, I'm listening.

RAY: "This paragraph is odd. What is its oddity? You may not find it at first, but this paragraph is not normal. What is wrong? It's just a small thing, but an oddity that stands out if you find it. What is it? You must know. Your days will not go on until you find out what is odd. You will pull your hair out. Your insomnia will push you until your poor brain finally short-circuits trying to find an oddity in this paragraph. Good luck."
