“I was in high school at the time, and my younger cousin was in middle school. I had been staying over at her house a lot because I lived across town from my school and her home was only a block away from it.
In the middle of the afternoon, we were watching court TV and I had to go to the bathroom so I left my cousin sitting on the couch and went down the hall to the bathroom. While I was sitting there doing my business, the bottom of the door (opposite the hinges) looked like it was being pushed in from the outside. ‘Knock it off, Sally’ I called to my cousin, laughing. ‘You’re gonna break the door!’ We often did dumb things like bang on doors and leap out at each other so this was normal fun.
