When you live someplace like the Virgin Islands you can feel like you are always on display. Like you are always on stage. Everywhere you gather with others in any significant numbers people assume you are there for their enjoyment.
If you are from here, or have lived here for any length of time, then you know one of the indisputable facts of life in the V.I., we love few things like we live a good get together. It takes very little reason or excuse for us to gather and have a good time.
