How to Ruin Your Boyfriend's Reputation

Guess whos jetting off to the Holy Land this summer! Yes, its Amy. The brochure said it would be a fun summer experience. Okay, so I didnt 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: 1) Its hot in the Negev desertlike, so hot your makeup melts off and you get under-boob sweat spots. 2) You cant sleep in until 11 a.m. 3) You shouldnt kill bees with your flatiron...dont ask. 4) Peeing in a hole isnt easy (when youre a girl)...double dont ask. When I find out our team leader is my boyfriend Avi, Im totally psyched until I learn he has to treat me like all the other recruits. Can you say OY VEY!
