Pressing Business

A good memory:

After another infamous Simpson Family Meatfest, a freshly cleaned Zoey sits in her Bumbo on the counter after ingesting a whole container of bananas. The kitchen is a wreck. Meme sits on the couch with her newly broken ankle propped on a pillow, so Granddad is left with mess which he lovingly created in the first place. Just as Grandad is about to conquer the dishes, Zoey coos from her throne. Grandad stops in his tracks, glances from Zoey to the mess and back to Zoey. After a moment's hesitation, he says with a smile "This can wait." He then picks up his little granddaugher who squeals with delight as if to say "Good choice, Granddad!"
