Odd, I thought

The other day I found a coathanger sitting on top of the hedge at the front of my house.

Not one of those wire coathangers used by drycleaners, but a metal and plastic one like you might get when you buy a coat. Perfect condition.

Odd place to find such a thing, I thought.

Attempted explanations welcome.

Salesman visits your neighbour. He reaches into his car to retrieve his suit jacket and the hanger it’s on, temporarily places it on the hedge to dress. Neighbour walks out, sales proces commences with salesman walking away from hedge. Salesman forgets about his hanger.

Except, the salesman would notice the missing hanger when he got back in the car. Oh well.

Someone was going to break into your car, but when they got there realised they’d brought the wrong hanger.

Daniel, have you lost any socks lately? You see socks are coathanger larvae. At night they crawl out of draws and into the wardrobe where they change into coathangers. That one had proably matured further (Hence the plastic etc). It was on it’s way to the sock shop (Target? Kmart?) to give birth (lay eggs?) when you disturbed its migration. Put it in your sock drawer for a week or so and see what happens.
