Random moments at Motel 6

We are drawing a lot of attention at the Motel 6. Possibly because we have our group meetings in one room, all 17 of us crammed into a pretty small room.

The second night one guy yelled from the pool (which is right across from our room) "What I want to know is how y'all are going to sleep in that room tonight!?" There are a lot of workers staying here, though I think we are the only volunteer group. So every night the balconies are filled with workers watching the coming and goings. I'm sure they are a little confused about what we're doing here, but no one has asked yet.

The general manager and night clerk are always asking about our days, calling us "baby" and "darlin'". It's a southern thang. Tonight, as we are meeting, a guy walked by the window and stopped, counting all of us in the room. Then wrote "I love you" in exhaled breath on the window (in between drags on his cigarette). Random.

We're in the middle of a meeting but I thought that was fun enough to post for now. We'll post about our day later! :)
