Kev is feeling his age. You never know exactly how long someone has left to live in The Sims, but you can get some idea from the little green progress bar of their life. Kev’s is nearly full.
He has accumulated a lot of wishes in a short space of time. All of them are to say certain things to various people he’s met in his life. To tell them what he thinks of them. First on the list is Rhoda Bagley, who he wants to insult. Rhoda’s brother Sherman answers the door, and clearly remembers Kev.
Once upon a time, Kev had a job working for Rhoda. A job that got him a spell in prison more than once. It doesn’t look like Kev blames himself for that. He strides into her living room and starts a loud shouting match with his former boss.
When he leaves, Rhoda still has a scowl on her face. Let’s hope that anger and frustration doesn’t get passed on.
Next: Kev and Robert Newbie
If you’ve found this tale of homelessness affecting, you might want to consider helping a real-world charity.
Charity spotlight: Homeless Truths
A while ago, I was fortunate enough to be invited to appear on a local radio show because of this blog. That radio show was Homeless Truths, which is run and presented by a bunch of lovely people who are all homeless / ex-homeless / vulnerably housed.
Homeless Truths is the only radio show IN THE WORLD … produced and presented by homeless people for 209radio 105Fm in the Cambridge area. We have just completed a funded course teaching us all aspects of radio production and we’ve been broadcasting live once a fortnight giving voice to the stories and issues and talents of the homeless community in Cambridge.
We love making radio! and we want to carry on producing Homeless Truths … but now it’s up to us to cover the core costs so that we can continue to broadcast with 209radio. Our target of £3,500 will enable us to produce one more year of programmes and train up to 6 new team members.
Whatever you can spare – even £1 – will give us a huge boost. THANK YOU
– Kirsten Lavers
Update: Unfortunately, I’ve received word that Homeless Truths failed to raise their funds, and 209radio have shut down. But I have been told that many of the homeless people who worked on it are now participating in a venture called Homeless Not Hopeless, and I am sure they would appreciate any support you can give them.
