Home Home On The Bench
This is a story based on the style of play in Kara's Barry The Mooch Challenge found here - http://bradythemooch.wordpress.com/ Basically my sim is starting off with $5 in a resident lot set up as a 'park' with just a couple of low quality benches, a chesse table and fire pit. Can she make it by simply mooching and stealing off others?

Well it's day 2 and Chelsea has come to the realization that if she is going to make her mark on the world and save up $50,000 she better get a move on!
"I wouldn't do it"
"someone might see you"
"like the people who work in this building"
"but I'm hungry"
"fine go ahead but what if the plants have radiation or something"
"I don't care I'm hungry and those grapes and apples are just sitting there"
"ok, but don't complain when you turn into some toxic avenger teen"
" shut up shut up shut up.. get out of my head!!"
... uh finally some quiet.
So despite Chelsea's arguement with the voices in her head she goes ahead and helps herself to some fresh grapes and apples .. good thing she has a bottomless invisable backpack!!
"woooo-eeeeehhh" I'm smelling a tad ripe .. where can a girl get a free shower in this town??
... Why the gym of course!
Mortimer - "hey lady, what's with the coat?, this is a gym ya know"
Chelsea - "hey kid if you don't want your bike to go missing you better learn some manners"
Mortimer - " did you just threaten me lady? Do you know who I AM?.. who may family IS?"
Chelsea - " ... ummm no why? .. are they rich? .. where do you live again?"
Mortimer - " listen lady, ask anyone we are big stuff in this town, now if you don't mind I need to pee"
Chelsea - " yeah umm well the bathrooms are sort of dirty, tell ya what if you give me a few bucks I'll go clean them real quick and then you won't have to worry about germ.. what'ya say?"
Mortimer - " lady I'm a guy, we pee standing up .. and I'm a kid ... I laugh in the face of germs, now move it!!"
Unable to mooch of the little bugger named Mortimer Chelsea decides to help herself to a quick *free* meal from the gyms fridge. But it looks like her freeloading is getting a bit of attention .. or maybe it's the crazy green coat she's wearing. Gym clothes girl, gym clothes!!
Chelsea - " damn.. the toilets really are nasty in here.. I wonder if I can bill the gym?"
Chelsea - " Ahhhh, nothing like a nice long hot *free* shower"
Damn Chelsea you are getting good at living off of nothing...
A quick comfy nap or two.. or three.... or four ....
Another free meal from the gym? .. might as well just move in.
Chelsea - " I know right.. who needs a job?"
Umm you do .. let's not forget about that $50,000 you need to aquire.
Chelsea - " alright, alright... hmmm this lamp post seems loose. I bet I could get some big bucks for this on the black market."
Yeah but how are you going to get it home Chelsea?
Chelsea - " duh, the invisible bottomless backpack silly "
Ok.. knock yourself out.
Holy crap! You did it! What a set of coconuts that took!!
Chelsea - " hehehe.. umm yeahhhhh... do think anyone saw me? .. shoot are their security cameras at the gym? ... oh man .. oh man I got to get outa here"
Chelsea - " a quick change and some dark shades and no one will recognize me.. and I'm on my way to the big bucks baby.. the BIG BUCKS"
And so Chelsea's second day comes to an end right as her third day begins.. of course she is in need of more sleep .. lugging that lamp post home sure is exhausting.

Chelsea was tired of the country life. So one day she hopped the bus and headed for the big city.. well ok she headed for Sunset Valley. Being a free spirit she really didn't think things through and just saw this little escapade as an adventure. Who needs a bed when you can sleep under the stars... and this little park looked like the perfect place to settle in.
Chelsea : Ahhhh, the open air, flowers, trees, the wind in my hair... (grumble grumble) .. ummm I am sort of hungry.
It didn't take long .. only a few hours actually before Chelsea realized that she wasn't going to last long on air alone. So she did what any homeless broke cute country girl would do. ... beg for money.
... and a more money.
Chelsea : People in this town sure are giving.
Two townies and $6 later and Chelsea thinks she might be ok after all.
For some reason the resident Witch makes Chelsea think of Halloween, which makes her think of Halloween Candy, .. which makes her remember how hungry she is. So why not try and mooch some food, right?
Chelsea : Mmmmm soup .. errr green witchy soup
...........hey beggers can't be choosers and all that.
Well with a full belly and all that mooching and running around (no money for a taxi) Chelsea is pretty wiped from her first day living the park life.
Back at the old home ... park? Chelsea relaxes by the pit fire.
Chelsea : Did you hear that? .. Hello? I swear I heard something. Nights in the park can be a bit scary.
Uh-Oh looks Chelsea's fears got the best of her. She must have stayed up all night at that fire pit, but the suns up and there is mooching to be done!
