A little boy is telling his Grandma how everything is going wrong — school, family problems, severe health problems, etc.
Meanwhile, Grandma is baking a cake. She asks the child if he would like a snack, which of course he does.
“Here. Have some cooking oil.”
“Yuck,” says the boy.
“How about a couple of raw eggs?”
“Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?”
“Grandma, those are all yucky!”
To which the Grandma replies: “Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves. But when they are put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake.
