A friend of mine was going through her phone pictures the other day, showing them to everyone sitting around the table. We got to one that showed a simple metal coat rack with about fifty hangers on it. She took the picture out in public someplace.

We asked why she took such a strange picture, and she said simply, “It’s a commentary.”

After we all exchanged peculiar looks, we started to think about it. And we came up with this:

Offering a public coat rack indicates a community where inclement weather is common. Additionally, there’s a level of trust when hanging your coat in a public place.

Perhaps it is a commentary. I haven’t looked at a coat rack the same way since.
