So I’ve been thinking about pants lately. More speficially I’ve been thinking about pockets on pants. On your normal pair of pants, there are usually two back pockets. This is a customary place where one would keep his (or her?) wallet. If you think about it though, it’s not exactly a natural place to keep something — especially something like a wallet. I’m sitting on it all day.

Why do we do this? Because someone years and years ago decided to place two back pockets on a pair of pants. And then years later someone started putting their wallet in their back pocket. So now we’re to follow these people. But what if those same people put pockets at the back of the ankle? I’d much rather hold my wallet down there.
