A Saturday with the Jocks
First off, I'd like to apologize for letting this thread sit dormant for quite some time. I have since resumed school but still work at the amusement park on weekends, which means my life has been much busier than over the summer (winter for those in the southern hemisphere). As I write this I haven't touched The Sims 2 in a couple of weeks, so I'm happy to get back into it again. Since it's been a while, though, I kinda just wanted to play for fun again.
I decided to play the Jocks today. (I don't do "rotations" or have quotas or anything of the like; I just play whichever household I feel like playing at the time)
Toby's on the phone with a Rosemarie Jitmakusol. He has a want to fall in love with her! He'll definitely be inviting her over. Maybe tonight.
He then invites Carly Firebaum over. His parents don't even know her, but even if they did, they wouldn't approve of it. So long as Toby can keep discreet... I mean, the apartment building is surely large enough to hide the two from them. Right?
Harold had work today until 3. He got a sweet promotion to Rookie, and brought home sports superstar Dan Newbie as well!
Sharla Ottomas' offer of a hug didn't sit well with Jason.
Quite the greeting! I think Toby missed the mark by an inch, though.
The two seat themselves in the nice restaurant on the top floor of the building. It's an unscored outing, but Toby doesn't mind. With his father in the building, it's probably easier if they didn't have scores to keep track of and hordes of kissing wants to fulfill.
Really, Toby? The weather? How boring could you be? Even Carly looks disinterested.
Ribs for Toby; lime seared prawns for Carly. The server seems rather excluded and unwanted from this conversation. Wonder if a tray-dropping "accident" is about to happen.
Hmm, guess not.
Sloppy Sims have no sense of table manners.
Today's a "cheat day" for Jason, I guess. It was a Saturday, and during the landlord's
half-baked building party where the landlord mostly annoyed his tenants, he didn't really work out that much. Now he's getting himself a bag of white cheddar crackers...
Isn't it just sad that Dan and Samantha Ottomas are playing on two separate pool tables? Such loners!
Now if mom or dad steps out of those elevators those two will be caught in an instant!
Thankfully both are in their apartment teaching a townie how to do the slap dance.
Well, if there's anything that didn't get done this weekend, it's cleaning the bathroom! What a MESS this place is!
I've never actually used the "Buy Coffee For Sim" interaction before today...
Mmm... coffee and convos. (And Dan's buying his own meal at the restaurant, it seems)
Jason thinks he can score some points from his dad if he reads the Fitness hobby magazine. He would approve, surely; he reads it himself from cover to cover every week.
Dan Newbie, of all things, orders an omelette. I see even the rich in SimVille don't mind cheap eats.
I'd say their "love" is too superficial to even be considered love... but that's just my opinion. I'll let Toby ride the waves if he insists on continuing with Carly.
Oh of course... Toby just had to make out for the first time with Carly in a stairwell, of all places!
I think I might've spoken too soon.
"So, where have you been today?" Harold asks Toby when he pulls up at the dining table.
"Oh, nothing much. The usual."
