A stray dog wandered into the kitchen and did that Terror Morph thing that happens the first time any animal comes onto one of my family lots.
Just LOOK at that thing! Its hind paws are on backwards.
OH GOD I THINK IT’S SCREAMING.
Then it transformed back into a regular dog and went on its merry way.
Fern, having met it, wanted to spend some quality time with dogs, so I sent her to the neighborhood adoption center.
It’s a good thing their house is too full to add a pet, or I would have been sorely tempted by this clumsy, bumbling little pup. Here he is, having tripped and fallen on his face, and also thinking about wuv.
I literally said “Aww!” out loud.
Eldritch and Solomon have taken a dislike to each other. I don’t know why.
What better time to send the adults out on vacation with one another? Whenever you have a kid turn into a teen, the game offers the adults a free vacation. This leaves your teenagers at home to throw raging parties.
The first thing Fenton did, after his parents left, was play video games in his pajamas.
I got bored with watching this, so I instructed him to call all his friends and throw a party.
When he did so, we discovered that… he doesn’t have any friends.
He hung up the phone with a pretty sad expression, and we settled in for a long couple of days.
(Sure, I could have hired a babysitter to help him. But where’s the fun in that?)
I sat back and watched to see what he would do. First up: homework.
Next: helping his little brother with homework.
Next: the kid was getting hungry. Time to make dinner.
Oops! He burned it.
Not much you can do but try again. The second time did the trick, and they were able to eat. (Of course, it was pretty late by this point.)
Meanwhile, Fern wandered away on her own when I wasn’t looking. The next thing I knew, she was downtown taking a cell phone picture of her grandmother, I don’t know why.
The dude in the background caught my eye. I watched as he crossed the street and started talking with some other random Sim about… um… about playing The Sims, apparently.
“And then they allllll peed their pants!”
Once again as you can see, unlike most fictional vampires, Sim vampires have THE WORST fashion sense. I’m not sure which is more heinous: the rolled-up pants cuffs to match the rolled-up sleeves, or the fact that it’s paired with cowboy boots. Just… wow.
And he’s so goofy-looking! This may be the sire of the next generation.
If his bad looks and bad fashion sense hadn’t convinced me, his name did the trick: Girbitz Washington. Girbitz! Sims 2 players with the University expansion pack should get a smile out of that. (Voooooh, girbitz!)
To cap off the parent-free experience, that night their home was burgled.
I think they were all relieved when their parents came home from vacation!
