Guess who's jetting off to the Holy Land this summer
Yes, it's me--Amy Nelson-Barak. I've volunteered for ten days of military training in Israel with my friends. The Sababa brochure said it would be a "fun" summer experience. Okay, so I didn't sign up to prove I'm not a princess...I did it to surprise my hot Israeli boyfriend stationed at the same base.
Too bad nobody told me:
- It's hot in the Negev desert...like, so hot your makeup melts off and you get under-boob sweat spots.
- You can't sleep in until 11 a.m.
- You shouldn't kill bees with your flatiron--don't ask.
- Peeing in a hole isn't easy (when you're a girl)--double don't ask.
When I find out our team leader is my boyfriend Avi, I'm totally psyched...until I learn he has to treat me like all the other recruits. Can you say OY VEY
