How Tiny Empires Nearly Cost Me My Relationship
Be Careful Not To Type Things In the Wrong Box
Sooo, Sweetie and I were building at 4000 meters.
No, no, no, it all began yesterday, when we visited friends who had just acquired a homstead sim.
No, I take that back. It began the day before, when we were supposed to visit them and they got crazy stupid in a frenzy of decorating.
I guess it doesn't really matter when it started.
But it nearly ended today, and all because of Ta Ta DAAA! Tiny Empires.
I played the HUD_based game T.E. for a while a year or so ago, but eventually put it away. Our friends play, and we talked about it a bit during our visit. While we talked, I put on the HUD. I was happy to see I was still a countess and astonished I had a subject!
But when I checked again that evening, I had been demoted to a marquise! A marquise! Dammit!
So I was wearing the HUD tonight while Sweetie and I worked on an orientation and visitor center high in the sky above Whimsy. I bought two acres and became a countess again (whew!). As soon as I got my promotion, I received an offer to abandon my leige and move my little virtual virtual fiefdom from the house of Lothlorien to the house of Avondale.Simultaneously, I got an IM telling me a bribe was on the way.
I said no, then thought about it, and IMed my briber, "If I come, will those under me come too?"
Except I typed it into an open IM box with Sweetie.
If Sweetie had been anyone but Sweetie, I would be a single woman right now.
