1. I stand barefoot next to 15 packages of flour. I pour them on my feet and start treading on the flour, spreading it into a circle with my feet. This takes a long time.

2. I swiftly erase the circle with my feet. I scoop the flour back into the packages with my hands and make sure there is not a speck of flour left on the floor. I place the packages of flour just as they were in the beginning and stand next to them.
