Anderson 3 – Round 22: ‘Womanizer, Pt. 3′

Filed under: Anderson — Tags: , , , , , , , , — Mao @ 11:54 am

Nathaniel and Sara Anderson are happy their kids are finally accomplishing something, but, not quite so happy that something seems to be getting girls pregnant or going after questionable relations.  There’s still Cole, though, right?

Cole met his distant cousin, Adora Anderson, and heir to the Anderson estate one day at school.  He knew instantly that Shelly would hate her as much as she hated Maggie.  There was no attraction there, Cole simply enjoyed knowing the important people in Boreal Springs.  He was still fully intent on getting Shelly to re-evaluate their little ‘deal’ only this time, sans Timothy O`Hanlon.

Sara, meanwhile, had Patrick come over with his impregnated woman friend.  Patrick had come only because he knew that if he didn’t, the repercussions would be much, much worse than if he did.  So he came, sat down on the couch and tried to work his charm on his sweet old mother.

“Don’t give me that charm, Patrick O`Hanlon.  That won’t help you here!  What were you thinking, getting a girl pregnant?! I thought you had a better head on your shoulders than that…”

“Did you bring me here just to lecture me?  You could’ve done that over the phone…”

“Oh, no, my boy.  You’re not getting off that easy…”

Dinner was a tenuous affair that Cole enjoyed very much.  Seeing his older siblings get in trouble was always a good thrill.  He also couldn’t help but notice just how very pregnant Viola was.  Wow.  Sara wasted no time getting down to the dirt on things–Patrick would have to do the right thing get hitched.  Nathaniel was so shocked by the blunt statement that he accidentally burned dinner.

Patrick and Viola both were not entirely sure what to say, but Sara was adamant.  Marriage or nothing.  Patrick tried to counter with the fact that Sara and Nathaniel hadn’t married at first, but Sara was ready for it.  She got pregnant of her own volition.  Patrick is a womanizer who obviously doesn’t respect women.

Nathaniel saw them out, looking just as wearied as poor Viola.  She was definitely ready to leave–the stress of Sara’s constant prodding was almost too much.

“She’s just trying to do what’s best for the baby,” Nathaniel offered with a sigh.  “I think… she’s right, but it’s your decision.”

“Do you know how hard it is to be a married actor, dad?  Really?” Patrick tried to smile, but found it difficult.  “I can’t change who I am.  Not just because someone’s… pregnant.”

Nathaniel gave him a look, “someone, Patrick?  She’s obviously means something, because you’ve allowed her to live with you, despite your absolute need for a ‘bachelor pad’.  I think you’re in denial.”

Patrick laughed and headed to the car, calling back, “and I think you’re going senile!”

Inside, Cole was getting lectured by Sara.

“Now, remember Cole, no getting girls pregnant unless you’re married or in a relationship and decide you both, mutually, want kids, okay?”

“Yes, mom,” Cole replied mechanically, sighing.

“And no cousins!”

He rolled his eyes, “mom, come on.  You’re worse than the kids at school…”

“I’m just saying, Cole.  I’m telling you because obviously, my not telling Patrick or Sade has resulted in them doing it!”

Speaking of cousins, Michael and Sade came over to see Cole off to college.  Once again, Nathaniel burned dinner.  He claimed that all the stress of these situations was too much.  He’d rather be with his dolphins or training others how to properly feed the seals.  Not this insanity met for family sitcoms.

It wasn’t that Sara didn’t like Michael, she did, a lot.  He was Gordon’s child and therefore, she knew him better than he thought.  Heck, Sara knew Gordon better than Nathaniel knew.  She was his legal advice and she’d come to know what he actually did for a living.  Made things interesting, that’s for sure.  Michael was a good kid, Sara was just worried being with Sade would mess him up.  Not vice versa.  She loved her little girl, but Sade was something else.

The dinner went well until Sade couldn’t take it anymore.  Burnt food!  It was like when she was trying to cook.  She looked at her father and without skipping a beat, said, “dad, seriously.  Are you going senile or something?  You’re cooking like me now!”

Michael was quick to add, “no, Sade.  This is actually recognizable as food.”

Which resulted in a glare and laughter around the table.  Cole would miss his dysfunctional siblings, but University awaits.

——————————–

Note from Mao: Whew, what a round.  Sara had some issues to address with her children!  Poor Nathaniel, I think he’s getting too old to cook, he kept burning everything, LOL.  The mesh that makes H&M outfits and others pregnancy morphed makes them look like whales.  Wow.

  1. They were never a regular family to begin with were they? Mom and Dad getting hitched after they had like three children, the eldest child in denial city, the second child has a family complex, and the third child.. well we’ll see what tricks he’ll be up to! And not to worry Nathaniel you might be burning meals, but you’re still alive and kicking! (Unlike the rest of the elders who are dropping like flies..)

    This family has definitely turned out a lot differently than I anticipated, LOL. Poor Nathaniel. He and Sara have a round or two left in them yet, I think.

  2. Even though this family has some silly points, they are still a pretty decent family. Sara, of course, will be worried over her babies and their decisions… but at least she’s not turning into a drunk or a crazy, old bat. Patrick is, well same old sillyhead. Maybe after the baby is born and he spends some time with his child that he’ll change his way of thinking, but who knows. Sade talking about food surprises me. I figured she’d start bragging about her special someone. LOL

    Yeah, they’re not nearly as messed up as the others! Sara is a good mum, just a little pushy. She’s always been that way, though. ;) Nathaniel has become very… laid-back in his old age. He just lets her do her thing and nods his head when necessary, LOL. Patrick is Patrick. He cares about Viola (they have nearly three bolts), BUT he likes his life and he can’t change who he is. Sade likes being with Michael, so she won’t ruin it.

  3. LOL, poor Sara- how did she end up with such fresh children? I hope Cole ends up okay.

    And YES, the meshes on the clothes are INSANE! They look like they’re pregnant with seven children. It’s ridiculous.

    LOL! Josh, I love your use of fresh. I really do. I AM SO GLAD YOU AGREE. I know every woman is different, but it seriously looks like they are going to have a litter.

  4. Wonderful! I love how Sara is handling everything!

    Hahaha, Sara is very hands on.

  5. Sara scolding her grown children cracks me up! And trust Sade to be the one to finally mention the burnt food. Michael’s comeback to her was funny!

    I only use those H&M outfits when they’re having twins now. It’s a nice bit of realism, that they’d be bigger with two babies in there. You should see the H&M outfits on a fat Sim. It’s like they’re having triplets or quads!

    Oh my goodness, I can only imagine! You’re right, for multiples it is realistic. Hehe, Michael is witty, but quiet… Sade was just being rude, so you know he’d have to step in!

  6. Either they look like whales or Viola got a couple things up her sleeve or womb. lol. I love dysfunctionality, it’s real. =P

    Haha, please don’t say that! No twins, NOoooo!

  7. The pregnant women look likes whales, Nate should be able to understand them then xD sorry, just had to do it. Geez, never a dull moment with this little clan.

    LOL, OMG… I hadn’t even thought about that. Hahahahaha…. :lol:

  8. Sara was always the type to go in and get hands-on with things. Good to see that hasn’t changed. Cole hasn’t yet shamed the family, so there’s hope for their brood. Everything will be alright though.
    Wow. Viola is a whale.
    I love that Sara’s more worried for Michael than Sade, LOL.

    Hahahaha, of course she’s worried about Michael! We all know how Sade is. ;)

  9. Cole is hilarious, just sitting back, all “normal” and enjoying his family’s dysfunction! Sara is great! I love her pregnancy/kissing-cousins speech :)

    Cole, will, hopefully be the normal one of the bunch. Hopefully. ;)
