Once upon a time…when I used to have time to play games, I was an avid “Simmer”. For those who might not know what I’m talking about, I’m referring to The Sims, the computer “life simulation” game from EA. I played the original Sims way back when, moved on to the Sims 2 and loved it, found myself disappointed with Sims 3, and gradually fell away from the game and the “simming” community. I’ve now learned that Sims 4 is coming up, so maybe I’ll have to make a little time and check the new version out when it arrives.

But, back to the DAILY PROMPT. Even  after I stopped actually “playing” the game, I remained an active member of the Sims community. I began creating my own “Sims” and sharing them through the Community Exchange.

I’m also a history lover, so one of the Sims I created and shared was Jackie Kennedy.

Another “simmer” downloaded Jackie, put her in a girl band, and uploaded the video to YouTube. It was hilarious. This all took place about four years ago, and even though I still have the video link, I haven’t been able to get it to work, so I’m not sure if the YouTube video is still there. I’m including it here…maybe someone can try it. If it works, please let me know. I’m guessing it’s probably too old.

The real Jackie Kennedy was definitely a “super star”, and in her own way, my Sims 3 version became a star, too.

Any other “Simmers” out there?
