First: Funny Graphics Glitch-Of-The-Week!
“If this is just a clipping error, how come my feet are wet?”
Now on to business. Fern had an uneventful teen stage. (No more teen parties. I couldn’t bear the disappointment.) Once she grew into a young adult, it was time to start her on her career path: Magician!
(You have to say it with Jazz Hands. Magician!)
I decided to make her a cutting edge urban street magician, Criss Angel-style.
But you gotta start somewhere. And where she started was with basic newbie tricks for her family, in her pajamas.
This is a trick where you make cards appear in mid-air, mid-toss. I’m sure it’s called “52 Pick-Up.” Worst trick ever.
“Uh oh, family members are bickering! I’ll distract them with my magic tricks!
“TADAAAAA hey you guys didn’t watch.”
Next I sent her next door to woo Girbitz. But he got hungry so we had to leave fast before he died.
Vampires are so tedious that way.
Instead, I had her practice a trick on Girbitz’s live-in girlfriend. Fern just pulled that coin from her ear, and she is STOKED about it!
I guess I would be, too. Look at the size of that thing!
Then, out of spite, I had Fern use one of her Genie powers to magically banish her from the house.
We later found her at the park. Ha!
Which was convenient, because it gave Fern an audience for her “Play For Tips” action.
After she got tired of playing, she spontaneously went fishing. I’m not sure I’ve ever had a Sim spontaneously start fishing. It was a little unsettling.
Later that day, I sent her back to Play For Tips again. This time, no one was there. It was pitiful.
But at least she got to see a deer!
A SimFest started that afternoon. This is a great opportunity for Sims to gather and get stage experience.
And for this little old lady to rock the purple cat suit. Respeck.
Fern was allowed to take to the stage. But her dumb little newbie tricks failed her when she got in front of an audience.
So many people, watching her screw it up!
But finally: success!
Unfortunately, she had already lost the audience’s interest by then, and no one noticed her big finale.
And then it was back home, to the leaking shower that no one ever gets around to fixing, and the robot nanny that everyone seems to hate.
By the way, I was planning to change her performing outfit, but it was TOO AWESOME. I didn’t dare change a thing!
