You know you lived in the VI too long when.....
Maybe not too long but I do remember the day I felt totally assimilated to island life...
2 years in, I had a early tour and rushed out of the house. Stopped at Nidals for a Red Bull, ice for my cooler and I had a craving for a doughnut. I opened the lid to the doughnut container and there was one single glazed left but it was covered in sugar ants. Without skipping a beat I grabbed it pulled off the ants and down the hatch it went.
I laughed later that day when I realized that I think that meant I was assimilated.
Nah, you're assimilated when you don't bother to pull off the ants.
I had forgotten how great these are!
when you no longer care which flip flops, shirts, shorts (old/new) you wear for a night out.
when "Don't Stop The Carnival" becomes required reading (annually).
Don do today wah you can put off til tomorrow!
When you're not bouncing up and down, playing dodge dem pothole, missing half a road on a blind steep corner, jamming to a stop to avoid a crater sized pothole that will destroy your tires or axle, need a drink, chiropractic therapy and an on call mechanic, then you're not driving in the U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS!
