All-Purpose Flour

I got some All-Purpose Flour this weekend, and used most of it to make bread from scratch. There was a little left, and I didn't want to throw it away. So I tried to use it to cure the cold I had.

It worked!

Then I tried to use the All-Purpose Flour to turn my bookshelf into a peacock.

Again, it worked! It really was usable for any purpose at all!

I used the last bit of it to talk to the peacock.

"Nobody ever did the right thing because of guilt," the peacock said, "Being a better person doesn't come from guilt - sometimes it comes from restraint, and hope, and sometimes from love. Guilt weakens your willpower, and makes restraint and hope much more difficult. Guilt won't change your behavior - quite the opposite, in fact."

I tried to find a few grains of the All-Purpose Flour to cure all the suffering in the world, but, unfortunately, I had used the last of it

"The best that guilt will do," said the peacock, "is appease those who want to punish you. Even then, you might just annoy them further."
