Quick Like Orange Juice

Medical Review?

A lot of people don't know that the Peace Corps can afford to be picky. These days, so many people want to volunteer that the PC is laying the smack down on prospective Volunteers. Not only do you have to write an entire novel about why you want to join the Peace Corps, but you also have to submit your body to being poked and prodded by doctors, dentists and burly nurses named "Jake".

But, don't sweat the small stuff. If you are in relatively good health, you have nothing to fear. Plus, if you pay out of pocket, the Peace Corps will reimburse you for your troubles (up to a certain amount which does not take into account the expensive lifestyles we Nomites lead).

Anyway, today I received my first reimbursement check for 165 dollars. First thing I did? Went out and bought my dad dinner.
