With Ernesto out of the way, Makoto is free to hit on everyone who wanders past the house.
Note in this picture that Makoto is still wearing his wedding band. That’s a little icky.
Frank brought a friend home from his job in the Dance career. This picture is just crying out for a caption, anyone want to give it a shot?
Meanwhile, Garamond entered college. Between her hair and the floral dress, she reminds me of Elaine from Seinfeld.
Before I started running Garamond through college, I picked a college-age Sim out of the bin and dropped him into the Landgrabb House along with her. I like to have more than one controllable Sim at college. It gives me someone to play with, while the other Sim is sitting there studying.
There was only one NPC Sim left in the college bin; a young man with the porn-star-y name “Jimmy Phoenix.”
Jimmy and Garamond soon became fast friends. Jimmy likes playing chess with her, even when she’s wearing her whackadoo exercise outfit.
In her junior year, I sent Garamond out to an assortment of community lots to Find A Partner. No luck – she chatted up dozens of strangers, without ever getting the lightning bolt Chemistry signs.
Then I remembered the story of how Dean Alphabetti and Brittany fell in love. I decided to give it a try. Garamond and Jimmy had become BFFs, with a relationship score of 100, but had no Chemistry icons.
One evening while they were dancing to music in the cafeteria, I instructed Jimmy to flirt with Garamond.
Whaddaya know! Love at first “wolf whistle”!
As soon as the big spinning hearts faded:
Jimmy: “I wuv u!”
Garamond: “I hope I get a good report card this quarter!”
Knowledge Sims. I swear.
