The plastic fever

“You know you are hooked when you get that feeling in the pit of your stomach. It is a shortness of breath, or a flush that comes to your face when you see it in a case at an antique mall, or on someone’s arm as you stroll down the aisle shopping at an antique show.Has someone caught you staring intently at their wrist or lapel, and mistaken your focused gaze for some sign of familiarity? 
If any or of all of the above symptoms or scenarios seem familiar to you, it’s possiblle you may have it ! 
Yes, it’s all too true, you may indeed be suffering from …. BAKELITE FEVER !!!“.
