When you hear someone talking, and you think, "She sounds exactly like <insert Sim name>"

When you see a piece of furniture, and wonder what it would look like rotated & placed by the wall, on the other side of the corner.

When you are looking at a piece of furniture, and you get a whim wondering what it would look like on the next level.

When you feel like grabbing a ProseNPop and your guitar.

When you are trying to repair something, and you wish that you had a focus painting, to make it go faster.

When you don't like a piece of furniture, and wish you could delete it, altogether for some money.

When you see a picture on the wall, and you wish you could enable its emotional aura, to get along with someone better.

When you dream you're at some kind of town meeting with Christopher Steel...

It happened not long ago. I woke up feeling disturbed, but also peeved because he had rushed off to a bar afterwards, leaving me behind.

When you spend all night tossing and turning, trying to complete a tournament challenge but you can't because you've forgotten the rules and it's just a dream; then you wake up the next morning feeling tired, exhausted, and too grumpy to actually practice for the tournament challenge...

You're introduced to a married couple named Christopher and Agnes and have to bite your lip to prevent you from asking Agnes about her first husband ...

When you spontaneously burst into a song that goes:  "Dear Abby, Dear Abby, my fountain pen leaks; my wife's simulated and my kids are all geeks"

When you're supposed to be attending a guild event on World of Warcraft, but you've got all your chat boxes moved off to the left side so you can still see them while you play the Sims overtop.

... When you miss a cue to move and your guild chat lights up with "[Name] is playing the Sims again, right?"

When you wake up in the middle of the night when you know your husband just awakened you by having to get up in the middle of the night also and you tell him some details about your new build.  That happened to me last night.

When you're happier about your sim getting married than you were when your IRL friend got engaged.

When you spend English lectures drawing up house plans for your next Sims 4 build.

When you spend bus-rides reading other peoples' story updates to the point where you get motion sickness.

When you wonder why you're not feeling confident after brushing your teeth.

When you're struggling with an assignment and you find yourself thinking "I need more focussing paintings in this room".

When you accidentally stay up too late when you've got real-life responsibility things to do tomorrow, and you catch yourself thinking "I just need a moodlet solver".

I won't say I play sims too much, not anymore anyway! BUT I've dreamed premade sims a lot. Usually just a regular run-of-the-mill scene, but with the SV premades in the background & foreground, interacting with each other.

Recently, I find myself often repeating funny-sounding simlish aloud to my fiancé who is sitting next to me working or gaming with his friends ;D

Welp, I often say simlish-sounding stuff when I daydream.

When you only have a week or two between simdictions.

when you already have 2 or 3 rich families, and you've only clocked 200 hours into the game.

when OBS says "puff you I've had enough recording clips of sims 3 without breaks that'll be thrown out due to corruption" and obs refuses to record actual sims game play for the rest of the simdiction

send help, my simdiction is overpowering me

When you're opening an uncompressed video on your computer, the video takes ages to load, and for a second or two you're trying to find a "speed 3" button to accelerate its loading. And then you remember with disappointment that there is no such thing IRL. LOL
