Klango is an “Artistic” Sim, so I’ve been sending him outside to paint a lot. All of his paintings turn out like this. Weird, right?
Since he’s also a Bookworm, I sent him to the public library to find a lady. There was only one single female at the library that day: Julie Burke.
They hit it off right away. Klango is “Hopelessly Romantic” and Julie is “Flirty.” I felt a bit bad for the other library patrons. You know, the ones who are trying to READ.
So I had Klango invite Julie to dinner at the sidewalk cafe.
The next day, they shared their first kiss at the park downtown.
The public dates were starting to get tiresome, but Klango’s house is really too small to invite anyone over. At the same time, it takes a few days before the “Ask To Marry” option appears, so I had to keep sending them out there.
That night, I had them tour the Science Center. Talk about your romantic locales!
The next day Klango invited her over and proposed, right there in his kitchen/bedroom/living room/dining room/foyer. She accepted!
On a whim, I decided to hold the wedding at the Riverview Fish Hatchery. Because why not, right?
Unfortunately I screwed up and set it as the wrong kind of party, so they couldn’t actually get married. They had to settle for making out next to the catfish tanks.
Then all the guests left (including Julie). Klango stuck around for a little while longer to finish his hot dog.
Then he went fishing in the hatchery pond, while wearing his tux.
The next day, I invited everyone over for a wedding at Klango’s house. At least I could control the environment, I thought. Wrong!
This, too, was almost a disaster, because all of the guests clumped up in front of the door and refused to budge. For a long time, Klango and Julie couldn’t reach each other to exchange rings and vows.
Fortunately the guests finally cleared, and the wedding was able to proceed.
To celebrate, I expanded his house, following the original Alphabetti rule of “a 12 x 4 addition for every new resident.”
Events proceeded apace, and soon Julie and Klango were bringing baby Lorne home from the hospital. Oh, those late-night taxi rides with the new baby!
Unfortunately, the very next day Julie turned old! Too old to give birth anymore. So the rest of this generation’s babies will have to be adopted.
Klango looks really stoked about this, but my reaction is closer to that of the girl in the checked dress.
Klango isn’t even an “Adult” yet, he’s a “Young Adult.” This isn’t an “Ashton and Demi” situation, it’s more like “Ashton and Bea Arthur.” Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
