"Yeah, we were just having a flirty chat. Say, where are you heading, Nathan?"
"Oh, I thought I'd go do an autonomous rude introduction to your girlfriend for no apparent reason."
"Well, that's not very nice."
Ugh, cancel! Cancel that action! What is it with my sims and inappropriate introductions to family members' significant others? Still, in terms of epic wrongness, the alluring introduction by Jaron to his daughter's prospective boyfriend takes the cake.
"I am momentarily happy because I picked the right chance card at school."
"See what I mean? Way too dull for heir. He's either angry or smiling dopily. Why?! Why couldn't it have been me?"
As you can see, Tessa is still having adjustment problems when it comes to being a spare. So far she would have been my choice, but since I am using a random law, the die has spoken, and we must obey.
Speaking of spares, Henry finally grew up. Let's take a better look at him.
Also, I don't know why, but I just love glasses on sims in 4. Maybe it's because there's actually a good selection? I'm not sure, but I'm restraining from sticking all the kids in glasses when they're this cute on them.
"But Dad, you're not even a Gregory like us. Your last name is still Price."
"Yes, well, we've heard that cas.fulleditmode can cause bugs in the relationships between sims, and we're not willing to risk it. What was my point again? Ah, hell if I know. Let's go get breakfast."
So, Henry looks doubtful and worried despite supposedly being self-assured, Aaron is furious over some nonexistent slight, and Tessa is staring off into space, pretending she does not belong to this family. Sounds about right. On another note, Henry has had the whim to "become confident" since he aged up. Since this is the entire point of the self-assured trait, that they become confident randomly, I locked it figuring it would be an easy fill. Yet it didn't show up for many, many days. What's up with that, Henry?
"What happened to the other two baby dolls?"
"Eh, who cares?"
"I'm going to go play with the stuffed animal now."
"What Corinne's trying to say is, you're losing it. Chill, child."
"What are you saying, Uncle Dorian?"
"This is a Spare Intervention."
"We need you to calm down, sweetie. You're taking over the story."
"What? It looks great!"
"Aaron, you really ought to calm down. You're going to blow up or something."
In the background . . .
"Sigh. I guess it isn't so bad that I'm not the heir. Maybe they have a point . . . I do get to live forever. Maybe this won't be terrible. I even heard Henry and I won't be kept in servitude for years and years. Yeah, this spare thing can't be too bad."
"But Mom, I'm doing homework."
"No, no, this is really important . . ."
"Mom, is this another one of your insane stories?"
"Right. Back to the math."
"Really? Because you come out and mourn me regularly, so I thought maybe we had some relationship already."
"Well, that's interesting. I'm glad my descendents are so well-adjusted . . . . . . . . say, are you going to finish that milk? Because I am a glutton . . ."
Speaking of next time, we've reached the end of the chapter. Thanks for reading and visiting the Gregorys' new blog. Check back soon for more Gregory-style madness, and maybe we'll even get a bit farther in the story. In the meantime, visit me at SiMania or Boolprop. Thanks again! <3
