Much like in the real world, I guess. I was watching out of the corner of
my eye as grade schooler Marsha had her classmate over and they were
playing chess together. They both love the game so it's a great way to
build friendship and skills at the same time. Anyway, they were talking
about the usual things, toys and school and stuff. When suddenly I
noticed the visiting girl speaking the grinning heart with the sunshine
motif around the edges ... the "Very First Woohoo" symbol. By the time I
recovered enough to find the screenshot key, it was gone, and they kept
talking about toys. I'm sure it was purely theoretical, but it was really
out of the blue. I've seen adults talk to teens about it, but never this.

And yes, I enjoy watching what my Sims talk about and try to imagine how
the topics connect.

Too funny! My sims like to talk about all sorts of things too, including,
for some
reason, woohoo. My old couple that I'm playing just to see how long it
takes them
to 'cycle out' (yeah, I know, I'm sick) seems rather fond of talking about
woohoo
while they are eating. Wonder what *that* means?

Do the older couples actually do the whoo hoo! ;)  I never played with
an older person before, I always turn aging off because I hate getting
married and I just cant' stand seeing the sims die. :(

I played a grandpa and he was certainly as eager for woohoo as the young
ones!

I rarely use the Aging Off cheat anymore after I got University. In the
past, I used it for a while to let the Sims build skills, since it wasn't
very realistic that you started out at 20 with no skills. In the second
generation, that is not a problem since the Sims have learned skills as
children and teenagers, and with University they have the four years at
college to get at least some basic skills and make friends. Also, with
all the want slots, you can usually afford all the elixir of life you
want, if the Sims are living out their aspirations.

If you don't want to see the Reaper come for Gramma and Grampa, you could
move them out before it gets that far, much as in real life. ^_^ Just
pretend they go to an institution where they will be taken care of. Of
course, then you get no life insurance, but life is better than insurance
any day, is what I think!

You bet they do! The lady seems to be amenable enough, but the man--every
day when he gets
home from work that's exactly what he wants to do. It's in the wants slot
and on his mind. The old couple
is the only one who does so without prompting, too.
