Potty Training and Sickeningly Saccharine Lines

Asher had been working with his youngest daughter, Elmire, trying to teach her everything: logic, the basics of communication, how to use her imagination effectively, movement, music…

He was currently working with her on potty skills, which he didn’t enjoy (but it was something fundamental she needed to master).

Elmire had just about had enough of him. She was an independent baby, with her own plans. She wanted to play with her doll house, listen to music and climb the stairs a thousand times. In her opinion, this was a waste of time—she had a diaper that she could use instead of doing this.

Meanwhile, Deli’s crush Cabe called to ask her younger sister, Dyna, to come over and hang out at his house as a date. The townie had been creeping on Dyna since he first saw her. Apparently, she was his type, but she refused because he was a mean asshole.

In the music room, Dysis and Rashad exchanged love poems. Dysis wasn’t especially creative, even though she was genuine and well-intentioned, so her lines were repetitive, but earnest—I want you you you you~, just only you you you you~…

At Dysis’ words, Rashad, an unwavering romantic, felt free to unleash the corniest, sweetest lines he could think of.

When I see you, there’s a spark! in my heart

I don’t even realize that times flow

Everywhere, every second, I think of you

I’ll give you my everything

Surely you’re my destiny

Because I feel our future shining so brightly in my heart

Even just imagining it is so sweet

This must be what thrill feels like …

These two are honestly so sickeningly sweet all the time. Rashad took a lot of his inspiration from a song titled, “Heart Attack” by Chuu.

ANYWAY, Elmire had Asher a bit stressed out, so his wife, Adelise, offered him a massage.

Then, to continue reliving stress, he kicked a ball around indoors with Dyna, with no care about breaking anything.

Adelise spoke with Elmire, asking her to please not yell at her father. Elmire agreed that yelling was not nice and she wouldn’t yell anymore.

But also, NO THANK YOU to learning more animals’ names and other words right now.

As for the only son in the house, Darius, he’d been spending a lot of time with Dawn and they’d been quite productive: cooking, conducting research, meditating, etc.

His grades for the semester came in and they were all A+s, but he still loved to take the occasional selfie for Simstagram.
