A.11 Moisturize Your Diabetic Feet

Goooood morning, readers, and welcome back to the Simptoms’ Infectious Legacy, where nothing makes sense and everyone’s a bit wonky.

Today’s update finds Sara….at the library. Wow, art really does imitate life.

“I was coming to inform that lady that leggings do not equal pants, but then I felt the stirring bud of new life in my womb yet again. Yay.”


Yay indeed! Another Simptom baby is on the way…only one more left to go!

“Yes…and then I’ll finally have enough kids to try out some new recipes. These pancakes just aren’t cutting it as is.”


“Is she….does she truly intend to turn her offspring into PANCAKES?! What sort of mad house have I come to?!”


“Hey, you…Kid 1. Wake up and bask in the glow of your newly pregnant mother!”

“moTHER, that glow is just the green stank from your overripe armpits, now step off and let a boy get his beauty sleep in peace! Zzz zzzz zzzz….”


While Sara’s off taking care of her “glow,” let’s spend a few moments with Kurtis, who hasn’t had much air time lately. Kurtis, anything you’d like to share with the readers?

“As a matter of fact, there is! Look at these kids. Aren’t they all neat? Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?”


“Wouldn’t you think I’m a Sim, a Sim who has everything?”


“Look at this room, all full of cribs. This room is bigger, and I had first dibs…”


“But now we have all these kids, and the kids, they take everything…”


“That bald one still thinks like an infant, and demands new strange things every day.”


“You want crybabies?”


“I’ve got two of them.”



“But who cares? No big deal; she wants more.”


“…..she wants more…..”


Come back later to see if having another kid finally drives Kurtis over the edge, and what Snowy will do now that she (yes, I know I said “he” in an earlier chapter; that was a lie) has a taste of the Simptoms madness!

  1. Wow! Only three kids. They need two more! Both of these poor souls may implode. Maybe Al will be a teen by the time #5 is born :).

    Very nice filking there, I have to say. Very nice. I’m sure Ariel would approve. I had to get halfway through to place that tickle in the back of my mind that told me that I knew this song intimately. Your version even scans. Bravo!

    • Surrounded by Family has to be the worst LTW ever. It seems so easy….have five kids and raise them, but it’s a miracle if everyone — including the simmer — survived the experience.

      I had to look up “filk”; you and Jo are definitely expanding my vocabulary.

  2. I LOVE it!!! Now I want to go and watch the Little Mermaid … Thanks for that! Although I think your version is funnier XD

    • Hahahahaha, thanks!! Sim Kurtis would be pleased…oh, who am I kidding; real Kurtis would probably be pleased as well. I love doing musical number thingies; if I had more ambition, the whole blog would be like that.

      Have you heard the rumors about Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe starring in a new live action Little Mermaid? It is apparently false, which is kind of unfortunate…
