As you’ll recall from last week, Garamond Alphabetti fell in love with a boy she met at school. Jimmy Phoenix (the game gave him that name, not me) was quite the catch. He spends a lot of time playing the bass.
When he’s not playing bass or working on his homework, he enjoys blowing bubbles. (College kids love the bubble blower!)
Other girls are constantly falling in love with Jimmy Phoenix. Then Garamond beats the stuffing out of them.
Garamond may look like a sweet little thing, but don’t let her get you in a headlock.
Eventually they both graduated from college. (I’m skimming over their junior and senior years, because I got engrossed in a project and didn’t even notice they had graduated until the game told them they had to leave school now.) They returned to the new Alphabetti family home, where they were wed in an outdoor ceremony on a beautiful summer night.
Their photobooth portraits were added to the family portrait wall.
And everyone settled in for their first family dinner.
When Jimmy Alphabetti (neé Phoenix) graduated to adulthood, the game slapped him with the full-on Hot Topic clothing-and-tribal-tattoos treatment, which was pretty funny. Alas, since Garamond’s Lifetime Want involved a career, Jimmy had to shelve his dreams of starting a band.
Fortunately, he turned out to be good with the garden.
Although he’s not very handy in the kitchen. The first time he tried to cook dinner, he set the stove on fire. Fortunately, while Jimmy was busy cowering in the corner and his father-in-law Frank hopped from one foot to another in terror, their smoke alarm automatically notified the authorities.
Garamond took some time off to get knocked up. It’s twins!
I named them Helvetica and Harlow. Jimmy is good with the babies. He’s almost too fond of them – I have to force him to put the baby away in order to feed himself before he starves to death.
To celebrate the birth of the H generation, I added a new wing onto the house. Just in time, too – it was getting pretty cramped with four adults and two babies!
