Experience With a Friend
My friend and I having a great time

We all have our differences. My friend Saran and I our different and we are great friends. My friend Saran and I have been friends since preschool. We have lots of major differences and I had one of my favorite times ever with him.
In the beginning of 2020, my friend Saran invited me to come with him to a YMCA with him because he wanted to go with a friend. My friend Saran comes from a completely Sri Lankan family. Most of his family lived in Sri Lanka or currently lives in Sri Lanka. We went to the same preschool together and miraculously we are still friends after not having gone to the same school since preschool. One night in January my mom got a call from his mom asking if I wanted to go to the YMCA with him. Since I hadn’t seen him in a couple of months I immediately said yes. At around 6pm their family pulled up to my house and we were off. The car ride was funny but stressful at the same time. This was because his father had turned on his phone to text someone while he was driving, Obviously, Sarans mom got mad at him and for the rest of the car ride they were yelling at each other in a different language that neither of us understood and occasionally the car would swerve. Eventually we got to the YMCA. We had a great time together doing things like pickle ball, soccer, and swimming. It’s some of the most fun I’ve ever had.
Saran and I have our differences and we are still great friends. It didn’t matter that his family is Sri Lankan, it didn’t matter that we haven’t seen each other in a couple of months, and it didn’t matter that we only went to preschool together. It only mattered that our friendship has lasted forever and we had a great time together.
No matter your differences between you and a friend, you can always have a great time, just like I did.
