The Blanket

From the Blanket to the Suit

Marty Egan


The genius of the blanket is a tale of survival in itself. Take one 18 year old, five foot 4 inches and 135 pounds and put him in prison with people who hate him. You now have constant stress and fear. The youth protects himself by making himself as smelly, disgusting and repulsive as possible. Upon release the youth acquires a good suit of clothes, showers, shaves and smells good. Has the youth changed his mission or does he just look different? There are three roads and you have been down one with a roadblock. You are now trying another. Why not wait and check all three. You can always go back to the first one and try and run the roadblock.
