Title: This Is How Guys Pee
Last Visit: Melissa was last seen graduating from University, week 16. Nothing really exciting happened there, but she was always very active having lots of parties and such. She graduated from the Greek House Crumplebottom.
Melissa's family tree. She has lots of townie genes in her.
Melissa: What! I am doing the most interesting thing in the world right now. I am bird watching.
ASimWen: Melissa, your man is approaching. Put those binoculars away.
LTW: To Become A Mad Scientist
Melissa: Taylor, ASimWen put a beautiful patio on the back of the house. Let's set up a wedding party back there and invite my WHOLE FAMILY.
Big Voice: AND SO IT WAS.
The Wedding Set Up
Left to right: (back row) Melissa, Jeannie, twins Rebecca and Randy, Felecia, Lia, twins Elijah and Erin. Sitting, Daddy (Bulldog) and Mommie (Madelyn). Sitting down front: Twins Royce and Rachel.
Yes, this is one of the huge Strickland families, seven girls and three boys. :-)
Big Voice: THE CEREMONY
Melissa: Nah, she is just jealous because I am getting married, and she is still single.
ASimWen: She best get Benjamin Long movin'!
Melissa: Once you snag a townie, the rest don't mean a thing!
Taylor: *turns 10 shades of red*
Melissa: Well, Taylor doesn't have the skills to become a Mad Scientist. I wanted to make things as easy as possible on him. Need that bookcase.
ASimWen: What a good wife you are. Putting your husband before yourself.
ASimWen: How about I ask you to get a job? This is a big expensive house. Yeah, Melissa had all kinds of Uni booty in her back pack to pay for having it built, but money needs to be earned to keep it going.
ASimWen: Yer welcome.
Taylor: Errr Yay! I guess! *thinks to self:* Man, now I am the sole provider while she takes a break from workin'. Darn.
Veronica: Yeah, too bad I have to carry my kid clear until the end of round 17. You get to have yours during round 16. I guess I will be eating for a long time!
Veronica: Ahhh...errrr.....I think my neice Violet (Capehart) is on the back basketball court shootin' hoops....
ASimWen: Errr Violet....are you a doctor?
Violet: Nope. But I know I can do this. After all, I wanna become The Law.
ASimWen: Violet. *ASimWen speaks slowly and patiently* I know that attorneys think they are Bruce Almighty. But I hardly think they are qualified to deliver babies.
Violet: Hurmph! Of course I can do it!
Melissa: Too late!!! The baby is coming NOW!!!
Melissa: Yeah. Great. I think I will pick him up off the floor now and go give him a bottle. Honey why don't you go wallpaper the nursery, put down carpeting, and put together the baby crib and changing table? I will be just a few minutes with David.
Taylor: You got it babe!
Rachel: It is time for David's birthday. Melissa invited all us Stricklands over for a party. After all, she is a Pop Sim and loves parties.
ASimWen: Makes sense. *nods*
Melissa: Taylor, red hair runs in the Strickland family, thanks to my grandma Kirstee.
Big Voice: And as we leave the Wheeler residence.........
