Sister on fire

Apparently, Sims can't be trusted around fire - at least mine can't. There she was in her brand new basement, dabbling in invention on her brand new Scraptronic Workbench... and before she knew it, she managed to set herself on fire!

Fortunately, her sister was close by, taking the fire extinguisher for a walk  - or whatever the hell she was doing carrying a fire extinguisher around with her! (don't ask, I've given up myself after all this time playing the game!)...

But as fortunate as that might be, it seemed to take forever to put out the fire... which got me thinking if big sis was having a little fun of her own as she operated that providential weapon of ass-fire extinction... It's just that halfway through the painful process, the clumsy inventor wanna-be was already looking like this:

"Give us a hug!" was the first thing on the charred sister's mind as soon as she saw herself out of that ordeal. Burned to a crisp and certainly not smelling like roses (no matter what the "hero of the hour" is thinking...) she ran to her sister's arms to express her gratitude and undying admiration.
She seemed to be extremely thankful rather than fuming over the enormous amount of time it took her sister to put her out... I mean, she was fuming - but only literally.

Don't fight the Universe

Sometimes your day starts in such a way that you're left with no choice but to conclude that the Universe is conspiring against you. And the Universe tends to run wild in the world of The Sims... that's what it's there for, right? It really is the perfect place to let your imagination run wild... as well as your dark side.
But I digress... As I was saying, it's those little things that go wrong for no apparent reason and at the worst possible moment that clue you in on the fact that the Universe is pulling your leg... and your arm - in fact, it feels like the big joker is sucking you whole into a whirlwind of despair!
Those moments may take the form of a clogged toilet when you really, really, really have to go...

Or maybe your state-of-the-art bathtub turns into a makeshift fountain when you just know that the only thing that could possibly restore your sanity after a crazy day at work was a long and relaxing bubble bath...

Or maybe you wake up late because the alarm clock didn't go off (an ominous clue right there...) and you gobble down some leftovers for breakfast and then... well, you're already late for work but you decide to be nice to the rest of the people you live with and put your plate in the dishwasher and set it to rinse. Okay, that was your mistake right there. The Universe was already having fun watching you run around - but then you played the "nice guy card" and that triggered a whole lot of who-the-hell-do-you-think-you-are-to -be-interfering-with-my-plan?! So it upped the fun a notch and... "crash bang" went the dishwasher!

The Universe knows you, you know?... From the inside out, better than you could ever hope to know yourself. It knows that if you were being nice to the point of being late to work and you were still taking the time to put away your breakfast plate, how would you ever leave the house with the dishwasher on the blink and puddles of water all over the kitchen floor?... Never mind how much hot water that'll get you in with your boss when you get to work a few hours late... It knows you, you know?... And you'd better not fight it.
