I saw ds the other night in the kitchen. Washing a dish. I wondered where in the world this miracle had come from.
Later in the week, he invited me to see his character's digs in Sims. His character is a young man, who makes his living by selling his paintings. In other words, he's unemployed.
In the kitchen, he has an old teal colored card table just like the one we have in our computer room. His character couldn't use his computer, because he didn't have the right type of knowledge or enough money to fix it. If he spends all his time painting, his "social" meter goes down and he has to have some sort of human-to-human (or cyber-human) interaction.
So, after watching his Sims character learn the consequences of not doing such things as interacting with others or washing dishes, I've decided that Sims has something to teach us.
