News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, I could use some travel advice. I’m going to Israel tomorrow, and I need to know what clothes to pack. I want to blend in, and not take a lot of stuff I won’t wear.
Four words for you. Fruit of the Loom.
I checked the last few photos we have showing people in Israel, and it seems all they wear this time of year is underwear.
Gosh, I had the impression they were a little more modest than that.
You’d be pretty embarrassed, showing up with all kinds of shirts and pants, only to find everybody else nearly naked.
I can’t thank you enough! I’m done packing, and I’ve got nothing but a carry-on with all my undies. I’m ready for the Holy Land! Oops, I almost forgot! I should keep out one pair of briefs for the flight over, huh? Boy, Israeli customs must be a breeze!
Yeah, that’s what people say. Send me a postcard.
