Funny you mention this, Andy. Just YESTERDAY I got distracted for a second, and didn't realize how hot the plastic was....hotter equally thinner viscosity, and I "dripped/shot" a line of hot plastic about a foot down my leg. I Was able to peel it off, which showed me how dirty my jeans were everywhere BUT where the plastic was.
in fact, i missed some, and later my wife (who normally is a woman of MANY MANY MANY words, simply looked at me and said, "Nice". I said, "what?" then looked down and Ooops- had some plastic in a crazy spot! ...was thankful it didn't burn through there!
Like you, that was the first time EVER I have done that.
I was thinking the SAME THING too- always long pants, and closed toed shoes. In the summer I have always poured in flip flops. Probably gonna be changing that now.
