"Grampy, I didn't get enough dessert."

Isn't that a great line? Doc handed it to me with an Oliver Twist look on his face, like he was being deprived of sustenance. Like any parent would jump up and say, "You poor dear! Have another donut or better yet let me get you a second bowl of ice cream."
I think that was exactly what he was expecting. When I told him I wouldn't mind if he never ate another dessert in his life he was positively shocked. I guess he didn't like the cookies I bought and was hoping to trade up but after that remark he was willing to force another one down without complaint.

Ah, the sacrifices they make to keep us adults happy.
