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.
