I don't know why, but as I was pondering my kids behind me in the car, Justin holding the box, Patrick asking him to pass the box over, Caesarea Philippi came to mind. One Peter, one set of keys, mandated rather than arrogated.
Then Justin gave the box to Francis, who sits between the two, making the box accessible to all. And I figure that it was the best situation, for the box to be given to one of them only, mandated to .. hold the box so that everyone can get a biscuit. There really was no need to pass the box around after that. I couldn't have planned it better.
