The Cute Young Thing of Tel Aviv

West Hollywood, December 1991

I'm back in West Hollywood after a failed semester studying Biblical Hebrew at Vanderbilt Divinity School.  Lane has invited some friends over for a welcome home party.  

I get some ribbing on the folly of leaving the gay world for any reason, which leads to a conversation about the craziest things we have ever done:

Randall drove 36 hours nonstop crosscountry with a hitchhiker, who wouldn't even have sex afterwards.

Will flew across the world to be with a "trick."

Raul's boyfriend is afraid of the water, yet he agreed to sail to Catalina on a first date.

Then Lane says: "I can top all of those stories, even Boomer's trip to Country Music U.S.A.   Right after high school, I spent a terrible year on a kibbutz on Israel."

"Well -- at least you had a religious motive," I said.

"No.  I was following a boy."
