I have the feeling that Metro was being funny when he seemed surprised about the vampires.

Sporty Selects Isaiah Hackett As the First Round Draft Pick

Literally moments after Sporty’s Teen birthday party wound down I had her huffing and puffing on the treadmill since she was finally eligible to use it. C’mon, Sporty...where’s that Athletic trait I gave you? You’re running on a moving belt. Would you be falling on your face if you were jogging outside? I will not be sending this photo to the Llamas Talent Scout in a couple of weeks.



For you long-time Man fans you might remember Bella Man (Bachelor) screaming at household members while she trained them in an earlier version of the story. Sporty looks likes she’s channeling Bella pretty well while she trains Kareem da Ghandi-Orca. When Sporty got the wish to train someone I had to be careful about who to choose because of the whole SuperMax deal, so a non-immortal was the obvious choice. And it gave Ghandi-Orca something positive to do besides staring up at the water surface with his gaping mouth waiting for a fish.



Sporty: “One more Man in the house and that’s it — full house. We need more room in the house. That means non-immortals need to get a visit from Grim. SOON! Oh, I think I see him, here he comes. Yeah, it’s the Grim Reaper!”
Kareem: “OMG! Noooooo!”
Sporty: “Get back on that treadmill you whale!”


It never fails...right during a big moment on TV, the cable goes out and everyone throws a fit. It was Sunday afternoon and GotDish? decided to update their area services during the Llamas and Vampires game. Oh, and Kareem Man died too...



Do Killer Whales naturally have a long life span? I honestly do not know, but Orca lived the longest of any mortal Man to date — 101 days. Everyone gathered in the Rear Museum to pay their final respects to Kareem. As always, Recipe is in the moment and focused on what’s going on around him. Look at Sporty. It’s like she’s grabbing her throat because she’s choking! I wonder if she feels guilty now about the whole treadmill whipping post ordeal.



Once Sporty turned her attention to the Bodybuilder Challenge it did not take her long to achieve phenomenal strength despite her small frame. It got to the point where she always needed call her dad in to stand on the weight stack just so she’d get a good workout. No pain, no gain!



Meet Isaiah Hackett, aka Ye Olde Cradle Robber. Hey, what can I say? Sporty looks in her Relationship Tab and he’s listed as a High School student. She invites him over the same day in hopes of him becoming a Romantic Interest and joining Team Man and he’s now a Young Adult. I guess Isaiah decided to have a private birthday party in his car on the way over! Isaiah needs to work a little on the basic “look ‘em in the eye” technique of making friends. Sporty, I’m thinking of an 8-letter word beginning with P...it's also the name of movie starring Arnold Simsinator. C’mon, girlfriend...I throwing you clues here...
  


Isaiah still seems like a good guy, so when Sporty does age up in 6 days to Young Adult, hopefully there will not be any additional effort required to break up a relationship and Isaiah will be quite eager to come onboard and join Sporty’s team. One thing that has Sporty a little curious though is what nationality Hackett might be because she’s concluded that he has both Roamin’ hands and Rushin’ fingers...
 


The next big event in the Man Dynasty was Danica aging up to Elder. I don’t always put the spotlight on mortals simply because it would stretch out the story even more and the mortals are not the focus anyway. But, they still play a key role in continuing the bloodline for the immortals. And Danica was just so darned pretty that I had to do something special for her to keep that youthfulness she brought to the household. After Danica aged up and had the typical “here I am, Grim” gray hair, I changed it for her to the nice blonde she had before. You can call Crazy “crazy” but he’s also pretty sensitive to his woman. He reassures her that she’s more beautiful than ever.  



See any wrinkles on Danica now? I don’t either. You’re welcome, Danica.

I nicknamed Kareem that shortly after Girly met him and they got married just 'cause he was so huge. When he aged up to Elder he magically lost a lot of weight, but he was pretty stout as a Young Adult. Not really fat, but incredibly muscular. The Ghandi thing is an obvious reference (I hope) to the robe he aged up to Elder with.

Glad you like it. 99% of the stuff in this story is so ridiculous and obvious, I'm hoping the vast majority of people get it. I thought the comment about "when did the vampires come about?" fell into that category, but you just never know. Unless you put a smiley face after something, sometimes it's hard to tell. But, for my type of humor which is pretty dry and sarcastic, I'd be posting smileys after each sentence. And that has the same canned effect as an applause sign.

I have so much sarcasm in me... I have no idea how I missed that. So true about the smiley face. I think "lol" is overused even more. Most of the time that is put after something that you the author wrote, and everyone knows that it is a social mistake to "laugh out loud" at your own joke if noone else is laughing. I do admit I am one of those people who will randomly laugh about a joke from 3 weeks ago. Anyays, great job. I love the pool.

Indeed. And it just looks like she's passing on more and more of that beauty to Sporty as Sporty gets older. Just a couple more days till Sporty ages up to Young Adult. I'm crossing my fingers that Isaiah will be good to go when that happens. My plan is to have generation #6 be a male, so I'm seeing grandpa Crazy doing all of the Toddler training. I guess the only thing I'm not sure on is if I immediately throw Sporty into the Pro Sports career or if I have her get generation #6 out first.

It isn't possible for them to get twins. There are six people currently in the house Recipe,Queenie,Girly,Crazy,Danica and Sporty. Sporty's spouse makes seven which will leave room for just one more.

Unflirty Isaiah Puts Up a 4th Quarter Fight!

Sporty aged up to Young Adult. I had her invite Isaiah over early in the morning, so there would be plenty of time for the two to become lovebirds and tie the knot. (Isaiah is in the back next to Crazy)...



Now, check out the next photo and pay particular attention to the light — it’s coming from the opposite side. The whole day had passed! You’ve got early morning light in the above photo and very late afternoon light in the next photo...



So, what the heck happened and why did it take so long? For the life of me I did not put one and one together. Every time Sporty made a flirtatious social, Isaiah’s response would go back to “Isaiah thinks Sporty is okay.” Then, I’d be back at square one. I kept thinking it’s Committment Issues, but then it finally dawned on me that it was Unflirty. Sheesh. Wake up, Tom, and smell the coffee. From there I simply targeted Romantic socials that were not Flirty and she won him over. But, WOW! He was a hard one to crack until I figured out the dilemma. They sealed their vows in front of Manly Estates and by the time their private ceremony was over it was pushing 9 PM.

That Special Sound. Sound. Sound. Sound. Sound. (Hint, Hint)

Sporty and Isaiah decide to take a nice, long relaxing honeymoon right in Manly Estates (Traveling? What’s that? Let’s get this Dynasty over with!)



Uh-oh. If our newlyweds are on a bed, hmmmm...I’m thinkin’...yeah, it can only mean one thing...



Sporty: “I’ve never felt this way before.”
Isaiah: “That’s mighty Sporty of you to say that.”
Sporty: “No, something just happened.”
Isaiah: (Ahem) “I know. I was there!”
Sporty: “You don’t understand.”
Isaiah: “Can we at least stop talking underneath the blankets? I’m sweating.”



Sporty: “Isaiah, something special is growing inside me.”
Isaiah: “What? You mean like a bracelet or a photo album?”
Sporty: “No, silly. I’m pregnant. Didn’t you hear the Sound?”
Isaiah: “All I heard a couple minutes ago was your father screaming at Recipe that he really needed to use the bathroom.”
Sporty: “That Sound was special. It’s a message.”
Isaiah: “All this talk about Sound. Why don’t you just make it more obvious to readers what the baby’s name will be?”
Sporty: “Oops. My bad.”

I don't know if I get it,what will the babies name be. Maybe if you give us all a clue to what the name might be. What letter does it begin with,how many syllables,what does it SOUND like.

Recipe Delivers...a Masterpiece

I took advantage of Sporty’s 3-day pregnancy and had Recipe work on her 3 museum items. It took 6 portraits before a Masterpiece came out, but it was worth just over 8k, so that was nice. Next came the ice sculpture. My rule of thumb is to stop trying if a Brilliant is done because Masterpiece sculptures are just so darned rare. Then, above the roar of the chainsaw, Sporty howls after stepping on a nail in the ground...



“Yeeeeooowwww!”



Recipe: “Hey, I saw you move. Hahaha. I know it’s a little boring, but try and stand still.”
Sporty: “Ummpppffff.”



“Ooooohhhhhhh.” (huff puff huff puff)



Recipe: “Whoops. Hahaha. I think some ice hit you. Sorry. Almost done now. Try and stand still.”



Recipe: “A Masterpiece! Sporty, it’s a Masterpiece for the museum! Worth $7612. That’s too cool. How’s the pregnancy going?”


And just after that Sporty gave one last push. The baby popped out, spun around in the air, went out to get the mail, took a taxi down to the Theatre to scope out good places to play for tips, then came back and rested in Sporty’s arms...



Welcome to the Dynasty, Sound Man! And all the Mans have a special message for you Man fans —


Recipe, Queenie, Girly, Crazy, Danica, Sporty, Isaiah: “Happy Holidays.”
Sound Man: “Goo goo.”
