When we last read of our favorite cultracy family, Sep joined Tony in his school age years, the family had a large costume party, and Vincenzo’s horrible mid-life crisis started to cause trouble, first with a wish for an expensive sports car, then with a wish to leave his loving wife.
Yes, zefiewings here reflecting on the stupid mid-life crisis with much disdain.
You see, I’ve been doing my best to play all the family in what is in their character and let them do, mostly as they wish. This time however those two things are in complete conflict of each other. Vinny still constantly wishes romantic things for Karla. Their relationship is still high in the green even with five children filling their busy lives. His personalty, behavior, and wishes all conflict with this.
As much as I would hate to do it to Karla, if they were having troubles I would grant the wish, in trying to keep my sims influence in their own life strong. But there are no problems. So then the question becomes…how to handle the wish?
Karla hears the roar of the car as it pulls into the driveway. Watches him swagger proudly up the driveway. But I warned her he was coming and she waits ready at the door.
“Vincenzo…I’ve been trying to be supportive and let you find yourself. I know you’ve been having a hard time. But this latest behavior..Vin going out and buying a 15 000 simolean car? We can’t even put a car seat in it! And your crisis isn’t over so its only going to get worse. Vinny..think of your children. Tony is getting old enough to start understanding what you are doing. Giuseppe needs you as he adjusts to the new changes in his life. The twins are going to be joining the boys at school soon and Elisabetta needs her daddy to help teach her life skills. Think of me…I miss you…”
She looks so sad and disappointed while they talk… I can’t believe how expressive she is.
Vinny doesn’t say anything, just gives her a kiss. Karla and I can only hope that she got through to him.
Karla tries to distract herself from her troubles by painting what might be the most adorable picture in the sims files.
Right. I’m not the one that’s supposed to be distracting. Okay moving on. I guess I’ll see what Vincenzo decided to do.
And…where does he think he is going?
Oh I hope he doesn’t have some crazy new wish like to flirt with another girl or something…
