‘Twas a dark and stormy night,
While lovers ate cookies with delight,
For its life did the bee box fight…
Did the lightning strike!
And this is the end of the bee box’s tale. 🐝
I was so intent on watching the happenings inside the house as Enio and Iva started kicking off their relationship, that I didn’t take much notice about the storm happening outside. When I heard the lightning strike, I started hunting around to see what it was that got hit outside.
Sure enough, there sat the bee box. Black and inactive. Dead.
Struck by lightning – RIP bee box.
The only option I had was to replace it.
I decided that after all the trouble the little critters gave me – so much that I even had to move the box to a far-away place in yard to prevent them from pestering the mail person – that I could wait to replace them until later.
Not like Enio was all that worried about a bee box at that point. No, he had bigger fish to fry.
“Reel Her In”? That better be a fishing book and not a romance self-help book!
Not to mention, all of his app development was starting to get him noticed. But as his fame went up and he earned additional perks from it, the game slapped him with the most debilitating quirk there was to have.
Enio became… a phone fanatic.
At first I thought… oh, well, that could have be worse.
No. No, my friends.
A sim being addicted to checking the phone is the absolute most annoying thing ever. It didn’t matter what Enio was doing, if he had a spare second to sneak in a peek at the screen, he was stopping to do that.
The house could have been on fire and he would have been content to stand there and check his phone. Maybe Tweet about it. Sounds like some people I know.
Anyhow, it was bad.
Hopefully Iva can smack it out of him, if bribed by cookies.
