2. Q immediately started standing on one side of it and shaking it and screaming that she wanted it open. Until we opened it, then she started screaming that she wanted it closed. (She does a lot of this kind of thing these days. Requesting P, then immediately demanding Not P. lather, rinse repeat, and the upshot of it is that you just. cannot. win.)
