Stockholm Syndrome

Stock·holm Syndrome
: the psychological tendency of a hostage to bond with, identify with, or sympathize with his or her captor

I was a prisoner who fell in love with my captor, Motel 6.

We finally busted out of the Motel 6 in Nogales and, well, I miss it.

I miss the pool:

I miss the unlimited supply of towels, and comfy bed and clean sheets:

(although not the grumpiness of the guy on the bed, with sunglasses on inside).

I miss baseball on tv:


I miss practicing Spanish with the staff.


But mostly,

I miss the free ice. I bonded with, identified with, and sympathized with that free ice.


Goodbye Motel 6.

Hello world.

Congratulations on busting out. You're free. You'll have to buy ice until you get to Ft. Davis, but then, there, you can make ice -- see Me's first post for instructions...

LOL. I'll have to get Me's kids to come out to Texas to help me...

Siiiiiiiiiigh, Bossy misses that too - even though she wasn't there.

What exactly does Bossy miss? The incredible Motel 6 experience as a whole? Or the ice in particular?

Ellie said...

Bossy misses *ME*, you. Actually, no. She doesn't miss *ME*, she misses Ellie.

Welcome home, Bossy. And welcome to our blog...

Bossy would totally miss me if she knew me.
