A promising start ends in an unproductive evening as the ‘Customers’ mainly stayed outside playing Kicky Bag and all that was sold were some cans of soft drink from the vending machine.

The Picasos head home.

With the business slow on the uptake, Matthew & Jessica have not yet quit their jobs in the Sim City army. It’s been a long day and they have an early rise ahead, Jessica is already in bed and Matthew quickly follows.
