Niles’ bedroom is very girly. Which is surprising because that room has never belonged to any girls. Emily and Sonya slept in the room next door while growing up.
Sometimes his father’s drive for a perfect child gets on Niles’ nerves... but with all the “educational” toys his mom buys him, he’s at least cool with playing with his blocks.
But Niles isn’t the only busy body in the family. In the background, Rhonda helps David master his logic skill for that next promotion. In the foreground, Emily take a minute to steal some more money for her daily massage.
Rhonda heads to take a nap so Emily takes over.
“How go the temptation issues?”
“Non existent. Rhonda bought a new exercise machine to help her build muscle. Remember how she punched through the wall last week while trying to bake Niles a cake?”
Rhonda finally makes her first perfect meal! Apple pancakes.
“Wow. I don’t mean to toot my own horn but that was delicious!”
“You should become a culinary instructor or something!”
Emily was trying to be nice, but it just drives home the fact that David is the only one bringing in a steady income. Even Emily has dropped her hacking down to a few times a week instead of every night, all night.
Now that Niles is old enough to watch himself, Rhonda decides to get a part time job at the graveyard across the street. It was built as an over-flow graveyard, incase the old one gets swamped, and so far has only two graves, but the owners still agree to hire her.
Trax is getting serious about his inventing hobby so Emily supports him by moving some of his less-likely-to-explode-in-the-night gadgets to the bedroom for display.
DAVID GET OUT OF THAT CAR BEFORE YOU MOTHER SEES YOU. She’s not dead YET you dummy.
He just borrowed it to take Rhonda out for an early dinner at the bistro. However, once they’re there they learn about an eating contest...
“I dunno David... it sounds kind of hard.”
“Then you can step aside and let a MAN handle this.”
“... Oh thats it. I’m goanna OWN your ass little boy.”
“I’m older than you!”
“I’m hungrier than you!”
“Sweetheart, I love you, please don’t murder me.”
“Aaaw... fine. But only because I’m too full to move, alright?”
“Whatever saves my bacon, sweetheart, have I mentioned that your eyes are beautiful in the moonlight?”
“... You can stop now.”
Oh and the Sunset Valley Community Cemetery has its first ghost, Amanda Sapphire, David’s paternal grandmother.
“... Why am I behind bars?”
Ugh my game’s been glitching so bad this week. It’s not letting Grim appear when sims die. And if Grim doesn’t appear... how will they ever get a gravestone/urn?
