It’s a very rare visit to a single sim household with Matthew Picaso.

You can just see the tip of the triangle, but he’s thinking about woohoo, as usual.

He paid the taxes right away.

This is about when I checked his second LTW and found out it’s to marry off 6 children.

No.

Just no.

(I’m mystified because he’s a Popularity/Grilled Cheese sim.)

Matthew got a dog last season, Hector. He spent a lot of time working with Hector on his skills.

Being a popularity sim, he also spent a lot of time on the phone.

Matthew’s at the top of the Athletic career and only works 3 days per week, which means he only worked the first day of the rotation.

He brought Nathan Gavigan home from work with him. They were already friends, which shouldn’t be surprising since they’re the only two sims in town still in the athletic career, now that Armando Cooke has retired.

“Hey, Dad! I just stopped by to see how the store’s going.”

“Well, it’s all right. I did have to hire some employees now that you’re not here to help out.”

Matthew tried to have visitors over as often as possible, and often waylaid walkbys.

He got along with some of the walkbys really well.

Since he had a day off work the next day, he hung out with the gardener most of the day.

Peter Ottomas was Matthew’s next victim for a walk-by friending.

On Saturday morning, Matthew headed back to the store to sell more lamps.

The dormie in pink set him up on a blind date. He enjoyed going out with the island girl, but it wasn’t going to go any further than one date.

Matthew returned home to make friends with another random townie.

Then he invited a half dozen friends over for a party.

Matthew had an open door policy, so he acquired some extra sims. The party went quite well.

On Sunday, Matthew invited the kids over. Carme brought Ramsay along.

He had a sneaking suspicion that Carme and Ramsay were more than just friends, so he spent some time getting to know the young man.

Everyone enjoyed a nice grilled cheese dinner before heading home.

Matthew spent the evening teaching Hector to play dead, his final skill. He then got Hector a job in the Pet Show Business career.

The next morning, it was back to the store. Mireia showed up this time to see how things were going. The shop reached level 8 by the end of the season.

Matthew got home to find a love letter waiting in his mailbox. He wasn’t sure exactly who had sent it, but he was pleased anyway.

Reno Day! Matthew decided it was time to update the cheap kitchen.

Much better, and now he won’t run out of room at the table at his parties.

Matthew spent the day in his favorite fashion, hanging out with old friends and making new ones.

Matthew was disappointed to discover that his hairline was receding in his old age, so he grew a beard to compensate.

He and Camryn had a private celebration after everyone else went home.

As spring came to an end, Matthew sent his customary child support payments to the triplets’ accounts.

That’s it for Matthew! Next is the first Uni rotation of the season.
