There are two inner doors installed in each lavatory door. There are two keys to open each lock. I have two keys and the other two are locked in the door adjacent to it. This represents the potential we all have as children and the need for cooperation/collaboration to open up to each other as we all grow.
The time when the truth itself was suffused with ruminations and rumors of ruminations to a degree that effectually rendered even loosely- alleged facts beyond recognition after landing akimbo on either side of accusation and defense in an unfortunately timed letdown resulting in a dustup over a mixup in meetup (It’s complicated).
