Sharing an Apartment with a Friend

I share one of the apartments in Orlando FL with a friend of mine that I met many years ago. We originally worked on the same job together, but the company we worked for started downsizing, leaving us both jobless. We lived in separate apartments, but couldn’t afford to pay for our rent without jobs, so we came up with the idea of moving in together in a new apartment. Eventually we found new jobs again, and we’ve been able to pay our rent without any problems. The best thing about living with my friend is that we share the same interests.

My friend and I both love to play tennis, so whenever we have some free time, we get our tennis gear and head down to the tennis court at the apartment. We’re not at the level as the professionals who play in the big tennis tournaments, but we can still hold our own, and even beat some of the other people at the apartments. There is a couple in their 40s that loves to play with us, and we regularly beat them. Occasionally they get lucky and beat us, but we usually dominate them due to our younger age and skill. It would be nice to have a tennis tournament at the apartment one day.

Near the apartment is a really good restaurant that my friend and I like to eat at, because sometimes we just don’t feel like cooking after a long day of work. This restaurant makes a really good set of pasta dishes that I usually can’t finish entirely because of how much they give the customers. I take the rest home in a doggy bag and eat it for lunch the next day. The restaurant has seen my friend and I so many times that they usually know what we will order.
