Day 39: Face in the Suds
Day 39 began with Farrah’s first jog. Since the addition of the exercise equipment, everyone was becoming much more health conscious. At least in their actions. They would now get fit on their own, with Robi pumping some Extreme Iron, Pete and Claudia hopping on the Richard Simmons band wagon and sweatin’ to the oldies on the TV upstairs, and Farrah dominating the running situation. Seriously, that morning she woke up, drank some juice, changed her clothes and took off out the door. I didn’t even realize she was jogging until I noticed that she was not in the house. I found her halfway up a hill, apparently trying to take a short cut.
I was proud of her. I just love it when my Sims take initiative, even with something as simple as going for a jog. Of course, when she finished and drove her car back home, that pride was diminished just a bit (mostly because I was questioning just where the hell in her track shorts she was hiding a car), but still, good for her. Robi decided to jump in on the whole “responsibility” thing as well, volunteering to make lunch.
Beyond this sudden surge of maturity, life continued on as normal. If, by normal, you include Pete’s sudden infatuation with painting.
Or Robi’s overt and steamy romance with Janet the Butler.
Actually, let’s just take a minute and reflect on this. Bertram left because, apparently, we hadn’t made him feel at home. And now Robi has dedicated most of his free time to making Janet feel at home in his bed. That’s my theory, at least. It could very well be true love, but I bet if there was an “ass-smack” option in this game, he’d be using it explicitly. I mean, as it is, he’s already gotten her to skinny dip with him.
In fact, I’m pretty sure they would’ve spent the entire night making out and swimming naked were it not for the call of Janet’s job. One minute, her Swiss Alps were free to explore the ever-so-nice waters of the MML pool, and the next, she was plunging, face first, into a cascade of detergent bubbles. At least she’s just as enthusiastic about butlery as she is getting naked for my crazy drummer.
With three days still remaining before their next show, the gang still had quite a bit of free time ahead of them. I wasn’t sure what lay in store for all of us. But, as you’ll soon see, it was quite a doozy.
