The Clear Plastic Slipcover For A Man
You can look yet you cannot touch.

A phraise that just about every child in this universe hates!

Museum exhibits often have this sign.

Well, now I was the exhibit at Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. Someone saw me in my raincoat and thought that they were prohibited from touching me because I was covered in clear plastic.

This man said to me, "I like your clear plastic slipcover!"

Well, I am taking it as a compliment! To me, there is symbolism since slipcover are used to protect something of value from accidental damage by someone who may be careless. Therefore, I must be of value and someone may damage me accidently!

Everyone on this planet has to have had an aunt, grandmother, neighbor, or even parent who had those slipcovers on their furniture to protect it from us children who might accidently spill an ice-cream on that expensive and fine sofa. Yes, they were uncomfortable during hot and sticky summers.

Very interested to note that at another party (this one also at OMSI), someone did accidently spill beer on me while I was wearing this coat. I simply went to the lavatory and wiped the plastic with a damp towel and went on with life.

So, there you have it. A clear plastic slipcover for a man. Mark Allyn's Clear Plastic Slipcover!
