Being teen parents is never easy, but when it's parents to a five pound sack of flour it is even more fraught with trouble. Cindy's project for Family Living class is to treat a sack of flour as if it were her child. The "father" is Chuck, "Metal-Is-My-Life" Shickman, who would rather die than take a sack of flour in a diaper to his Advanced Remedial English class. Bribes, threats, brownies, Twinkies, and a twisted kidnaping plot are employed. Everyone learns something about parenting and each other.
First produced at Chamberlain High School in Tampa, Florida this comedy received Superior ratings and Best Actress Award in district and state competitions.
