Before the pandemic, I always went to Andy’s place twice a month. We were work buddies and after he left his job, we started to hang out then eventually we become friends. I have known him for five years now. It is quite far from my place, around 12 miles. If I take the bus it would take me around an hour so I just went there by cab and I could get there within 30 minutes.
The house is big, four times as big as my house, it is like four basketball courts. It is a duplex house with four beds and two baths. He also has a dirty kitchen and a large open space for the kids to play or ride their bikes. He actually bought a slide for his kids.
I feel kinda envious but I am really happy for him. Also, he planned to sell that house before so I was really excited to buy it but eventually, he went cold turkey. Since I live far from his place now, I have only visited him once a year and kinda miss hanging out at that place. The place is very far from downtown so it is relaxing as there are no noise and loud people.
I know Maverick back in high school, and we are good friends ever since. Back in our high school days, their place is our top hang-out place because his mom and dad are really cool and we felt very welcome. We always have snacked prepared by his mom.
Since the place was far, we can only go there every Friday after school or sometimes during weekends. The house is small but very cozy, it is about half a basketball course. His parent’s migrated so that house was new when we first saw it. Now, it was upgraded. They replaced the foundation and had the kitchen and bathroom fixed. For the rooms, they just fixed the ceiling and replace the hardwood floor with tiles which I was really against.
That home brings nostalgia, whenever I visit that place, I always remember our high school days and our simple life. Sometimes, I also feel sad as his dad passed away and I remember when my friend’s dad was strong he was always asking me if I needed more snacks. That home brings a lot of memory.
