So, I ended up having to start back over the day Judith became an adult. She had already taken the job in Law, and this time she was going up faster and wasn't getting nearly as many chance cards. Rick died the day before Carl grew to an adult. First job was Culinary. Now, I remember thinking, several times, that Carl should *not* go into culinary. He set the grill on fire the first time he tried to grill hot dogs, and burned so many after that that I finally stuck him on lunch meat sandwiches (which actually earn you more cooking points than hot dogs, who knew?) Still, it was the first job up and even though I don't usually try to lift it this early (since it tends to make things boring) I let him take it. He's doing fairly well at it, and is already a waiter. He's got full logic and creativity, so just needs 5 cooking points.
Judith stayed in Law. It was Monday, she was one promotion away, had all her points, I made sure she was as green as it was possible to be. If she didn't make it that day, she would the next and be able to call Marisa over with plenty of time before elderhood. Chance card. She did not get fired, which I checked after I chose and could have happened. She did however, lose two charisma points. She wasn't able to lift Law until Wednesday thanks to having to get those points back. However Kim came by as soon as she got home, so she might not have gotten a spouse yet, but she does now have a cat.
Of course, that rule change I use? You know, putting lock wants/fears under Law... not doing me a lot of good since my mouse only has one working button. Yeah, can't lock wants without a second button
Rick Grimes - no lift
Judith Grimes - Law, Hopelessness
Carl Grimes - working on Culinary
Kim - whichever comes up first; Service or Showbiz
