Santa Monica

I was walking to work one day and I was thinking to myself that I was paying too much money in rent. I noticed the place across the road looked good from the outside and that it was for sale. On a whim, I rang up and inspected it and it was crap inside. I was a little sad. This fleeting compulsion to buy an apartment had failed.

On my way to work the next day I noticed an apartment for sale. It also looked pretty good from the outside and was in a great location so I booked an appointment for it. When I saw it, it was great. Huge balcony, nice interior, new kitchen etc. It was really well lit with one side all glass looking out over the balcony. There was also some harbour views although better in winter due to a deciduous tree in the way. And it was considerably cheaper than the first one I looked at.

It also has a cool name - "Santa Monica". There's probably some joke I could create involving Bill Clinton and certain things that didn't exist but I'm not smart enough to put it together.

So I bought it and have been delighted ever since. My mum always told me never to buy the first place you see. I didn't! I bought the second one.
