Real Estate

Last week we had a firm event, and then afterward, my coworker L and his wife invited some of us back to their place.

L and his wife and 9-year-old daughter live in a one bedroom apartment on the Upper West Side. It's about 400 square feet for the three of them. That's smaller than my apartment.

The kid gets the bedrooom. So for the last 6 years (ever since the kid was a toddler), L and his wife have been sleeping on the pull-out couch in the living room.

What's more, they home school the kid. Which means that she's ALWAYS there.

I haven't asked them, but when the hell do they find the time to, you know, uh, have sex?

Or not even that, are they ever alone together?

No wonder they have only one kid.

It doesn't make any sense, either. L is really senior, so I figure he's making at least $200,000 a year. He can certainly afford a bigger place. He doesn't have private school tuition to pay, and he and his wife never go out.

My theory is that he has gambling debts. Or maybe he's paying his way out of indentured servitude. Any other ideas?
