Wife Points

ActionPointsRunning Total
I went shopping today after work, found a knee-length black satin slip-skirt and bought it. Do I lose points for spending money? Or do I gain points for doing something Wife Creatures are "supposed" to do that I don't normally do? 0
It was $35 + tax -50 for paying so much for it and not on sale. (50)
I'd been looking high and low for one for two years to wear with the black business/interview/funeral suit with a small black skirt that's amazingly see-through, so I couldn't wear it in the time that I've had it. +200 150
It's a Small and it's still too long, so it will need to be altered along with the sleeves of the jacket. -50 100
I went by Timmy Ho's and bought a box of 40 Timbits for userinfoThe Poor Guy With A Bummed Ankle. +5000 5100
But I ate some in the car while I was waiting for him. -6000 (900)
I waited for 45 minutes. +400 (500)
It was 1815h, I was tired and hungry. +400 (100)
I ate in the car. -900000. Huge no-no. NO EATING IN A NEW CAR. And our car is still considered A New Car™ as evidenced by it still smelling like a new car. (1000000)
But I was really hungry. Restore 500000 (500000)
I brushed the crumbs off the leather seat. +500 (499500)
... and onto the carpet. -300 (499800)

And I end up at -499800 Wife Points. I suck.

If there were a point system such as that in marriage, the typical male counter-part would be screwed.

Hehe, it would depend on the DM, I think =)

Most definitely; unless it were by strict formula—having alterations based on inhabited nation.

That way, marriage could be a world-wide sport. Spouses across the globe competing for the top in a fierce, masculine, mechanical manner. Ultimately losing sight of what's truly important. The top runners will be televised 24/7, and will succeed in devaluing what a relationship means, only for the sake of a frivolous goal.

I’ll be right back.

I’m pitching this baby to Fox!

Heh, you wouldn't be saying that if you saw how dorky it looks hanging out of the suit skirt =)

... that's a lot for a skirt?!
Apr. 12th, 2005 05:32 am (UTC)
I usually don't pay more than $15-20 for any article of clothing, tops, pants, shoes, so $35 for a stupid skirt is pretty insane to me.

Wow - and I've seen your wardrobe in CandyDoll version =D so I know how nicely you dress. How do you manage that?

Veryvery picky eye at Costco and mall sales. I tend to find very plain things that are more classic and less trendy. Trendy turns into passé very quickly =)

You're hilarious!

I went by Timmy Ho's and

I thought you were going to say you rolled up the rim and won something good!

Is the Roll Up The Rim thing on again? I just might try it =D I want to win the SUV and sell it. =D

Wow, I would be terrified to see a running total (or deficit, rather) of my points. We already established that we will have to get married at least 3 more lifetimes for me to make up for the crap that has gone on in the past 5 years.

If eating some Timbits is -6000 in this system, then I'm screwed.
Apr. 13th, 2005 01:08 am (UTC)
Hee, find a more laid back DM and you'll do fine =)

Ah but you forget you're playing by Male edition rules. If you're playing a game where your DM is a guy, your PC is a girl if she is wearing a skirt, you get HUGE positive modifiers to your roll regardless of the things you do. So that -499800 would get modified to something like a -5. Still not a good result but the consequences aren't fatal.

You just gotta make your saving throws!! =)

I thought that was the Male edition rules... would I seriously only get 400 points back for "being tired and hungry at 1815h waiting 45 minutes" if it were the Female edition?

*lol* you made me laugh! too cute!
Apr. 13th, 2005 04:43 am (UTC)
*hee* *bow* =)
