One Is The Loneliest Number

One Is The Loneliest Number

Lot: Strickland.1 - Bubbs and dog

Last Visit: Bubbs Strickland last seen in University

For those of you familiar with the old Disney 'How To' cartoons starring Goofy, imagine the narrator of this story the Voice on those cartoons. We will proceed.

Meet Mr. Knowledge. Mr. Knowledge is your normal every day swinging bachelor fresh out of college. He is into gardening, painting, and meeting the neighbors. Someday he hopes to become a mad scientist.

Today Mr. Knowledge is tending his flower garden. See the brand new home he just bought? He hopes it's gothic appearance will really be a chick magnet. Oh, what is this? Mr. Knowledge gets a visitor.

What a good looking dog! Mr. Knowledge, do you like this puppy? *Bubbs looks into the camera, smiles widely, and nods*. Good. I think Pepper likes you too.

Oh my. Pepper appears to be rather aggressive. Do you find her scarey, Mr. Knowledge? *Bubbs nods into the camera, clearly frightened* Here you go. Try on these Nike running shoes, Mr. Knowledge. They will help you out run that vicious dog. *Pepper proceeds to chase Bubbs around the lot*.

What a good idea, Mr. Knowledge. is a great place to find a job. Maybe that is best to get your mind off that terrible incident with that ferocious canine earlier today. Oh, there is the doorbell. Better go answer it!

Who is it? Your cousin? This is Cara Strickland. She married your cousin Kolton Strickland? You say you knew her in college? *Bubbs grins*

That's right, Mr. Knowledge. Nothing like frolicking in the sun all day. Make a day out of it! Heck, go on a picnic!

Oh No Mr. Knowledge! You don't let your cousin's wife flirt with you! Ah, but you are a babe magnet! She can't help herself, now can she. It isn't your fault, now is it? *Bubbs shakes his head no, with a glint in his eye*

Well, I suppose just one kiss couldn't hurt. What is that Mr. Knowledge? Mrs. Robinson...errr...your cousins' wife just gave you your first kiss? It had to happen some time, nothing like the present, right?

I see Pepper is back, and you two have decided upon a truce. That is best. No sense in having enemies in the neighborhood. Be kind to your four footed friends, I always say!

I see Pepper has made herself at home. What? She moved in? I see all it took was a few belly rubs and some snacks. Mr. Knowledge, if only it were that easy to persuade a woman.

I see Pepper is taking up a lot of your time. But not all of it, right Mr. Knowledge?

Another visitor from your college days? Joy the mean...Joy Capehart-Robbins has come to visit? Very good! Nothing like catching up on old times.

Yes, yes, reminescing about days past is good for the soul, right Mr. Knowledge? Mr. Knowldege? Oh sorry.

Selling your works of art, Mr. Knowledge? That is an extremely good way to bring some funds into the bank account. The chicks love a gent to have lots of Simoleons on hand. I'll bet you can't wait for the dough to really start rolling in from your job. *Bubbs nods*

Hey hey! It looks like your cousins's wife wrote you a letter Mr. Knowledge! Thanking you for the nice after noon dancing in the sun. You are on your way to the good life!

Ah, what a nice way to spend Saturday afternoon, and a way to take Pepper out to meet the neighborhood. Nothing like going to the park. I see you have met a bimbo...errr.. I mean a very nice lady in the park. Yes, yes, cook hamburgers for everyone. That will surely draw the babes.

Surely you didn't receive complaints because Pepper was a little odiferous. Good thing the city park provides a place to wash your pooch.

Bubbs! Errr I mean Mr. Knowledge! Quick turn around! There is a babe getting the hots for you!

I see you are really hitting it off with Joy Hiatt! What, she is a two bolt for you Bubbs/Mr. Knowledge? Really? My oh my, what is your Cousins's Wife Cara gonna think? HuH? Cara! You remember Cara? And Joy Slut errrr Capehart-Robbins? ??? You never heard of them! ??? Riiiiggght. I get the picture.

Well off to work. The day off is over, and it is time to put the nose back to the grind stone. Looks like Pepper is faithfully holding down the fort.

Pepper! Why didn't you stop this? OH riiiiggght....

Couldn't get enough of the park. I see.

Mr. Knowledge, I see you have bought some swingin' duds there. You are right, courdoroy bell bottoms will get 'em every time. I see you are on the phone. Who are you calling? Joy Hiatt? She has agreed to go on a date with you? Great!

I see you went to Four Winds Shopping for some dancing and coffee. Where are your fancy clothes? Eh? Pictures out of sequence, and just made a great storyline this way? Okay! I'll buy that!

Well, well, well Mr. Knowledge. It has been a fruitful week for you, your first week out of college. You met a great dog, who moved in with you, you got a great job and you met a hot chick. What could be better?

Petting a Riiiiiggght. See ya next time, Mr. Knowledge!

Wow, Mr. Knowledge sure gets around. Regardless of his nose... interesting. Loved the update Wen, poor Bubbs, here's to hoping he settles down soon! At least before all his girlfriends find out about eachother and do something to his nose that we will all regret!

Katie said...

The narrative was so amusing, it reminds me just of what you said. Great job!

Rachel said...

Hehe, this narration was very amusing. I loved Bubbs being afraid of little Pepper and her chasing him around the yard. Also loved Joy Slut! Great Update.

Hopefully his little Bubblets won't have his nose...
