NEW HOUSE, NEW LIFE
Last Visit: Skillin' All The Way To Uni
Editor - This entry starts Round 16 in Prosperity Falls. Take a look at the house below. Do you recognize it? It is from a television show that was in primetime in the '70's. I will take all correct guesses, draw one winner, and add that SimSelf to the Townie pool in Prosperity Falls. Email your guess to asimwen(at)gmail(dot)com with "GUESS" in the subject line. All entries due by midnight, August 31st, 2007.
Zeon here. Me and Trudy graduated from University. I moved back home to mom and dad's house, well sort of. I had gotten a letter from dad tellin' me he had moved everyone to the country and that I should simply come home to a different address. Mom (Yasika) decided she didn't like the house anymore that Aunt Ramey and Aunt Pachionetta had bought decades ago for the Bostics. I was apprehensive. I had envisioned Trudy and I raising our children in that large three level home.
But when I set foot on this place, I realized there was nothing to worry about. It had a large yard we could put out a garden, and a storage shed where dad had placed all the skilling objects. Upstairs was 5 bedrooms and down stairs had a large country kitchen and a large living room with a great fireplace. The other house didn't have those things.
Well, as soon as I got settled in, mom took me aside and got me caught up on the Misson. She said, not a whole lot going on. I find that hard to believe. I am sorta out of the loop with all that. The delivery of reports from Uncle Zaed is spotty at best. Mom acts like it is of no concern to her. So I will just do my best. Mom wasn't really into the Mission much anyway. She said she did her part by spitting out children. There is more to it than that. Sometimes I wish I was in the 'echelon' of Anotothians that were 'in the know'. Ah well. I will do what I can. Perhaps I am too human.
At any rate, Trudy and I immediatly went Downtown to go shopping for our wedding clothes. My cousin Xaun was there, as well as Gertrude Strickland-Capehart. She is a distant cousin of dad's.
Trudy said he was quite rude. She was busy telling him all about her life, gawd, the girl talks alot, and she said he just seemed to ignore her and eat the burgers she had cooked. Eventually she came inside and we shopped. The man didn't even tell her his name. She said the whole experience was quite unnerving. Said there was something about him she couldn't quite put her finger on.
Gertrude: I think I am. Ya know, I have the signs.
Xuan: Ah. Barfing and stuff like that?
Gerturde: Man oh man the barfing. I can't get over it. Keeps me sick.
Xuan: My wife Joy had bad morning sickness too.
Ruby: The king wants a word, Xuan!
Xuan: Huh? What? I'm busy networking!
King: Xuan! Information as come to light regarding the paternity of Qyrstal Robbins!
Xuan: Qyrstal? The youngest of Quavi and Joy?
King: Xuan. (exercising extreme patience). Joy knows.
Xuan: Knows what? The kid is Quavi's.
King: Do you remember what she cried out when she was in labor?
Xuan: Ummmm.....something really hateful. Not surprising.
King: She said: (Xuan hears lots of shuffling around, switch flipped) "Ahhhhh! The baby is coming! *LOTS OF ALIEN CUSSING* Whoops..where did that come from? Xuan Robbins if you EVER do this to me again!!!!!!" Xuan - Does that ring a bell?"
Xuan: I figgered she was delirious.
King: Look at this. It is a page from the book that Ruby keeps on you.
King: I will let Ruby explain that to you some other time. Look at this!
Xuan: It shows....shows.... I'm DA DADDY!
King: Yes. Good job, Xuan!
Xuan: Errr...thanks? I think?
King: Keep up the good work!
Alien chatter dies out.....

The wedding went off without a hitch, except, as soon as Kyanne took a bite of wedding cake she went to the bathroom and got sick. I wondered if J'Adore Bakery had sold us a bad cake.
Well, it turns out it wasn't a bad cake. During the wedding party, Trudy got a call from her gynocologist's office.
Right around that time, Trudy had our baby.
