“you know carnival done when…”
1. Time resumes it’s regular snails pace
2. Co-workers find u staring blankly into space while u have flashbacks of some sweet wine
3. You do post fete analysis to see how to improve next carnival.
4. Your ears finally stop ringing from the loud music
5. The blisters heal
6. The Facebook friend requests stop
7. When the party Vibes hit and you are snowed in, no fete in sight
8. When u can literally hear soca in your head while sitting in silence
9. When your tan peels off.
10. When u blow your nose and it’s not black from breathing dust.
11. When u catch yourself chipping instead of walking down the street.
12. You negotiate with yourself about selling something to reach the next available carnival.
13. Instead of doing your job you spend all day combing through photo sites looking for pics of yourself on the road.
14. Girls that previously scored 10 now get 7 and 8… and when they dance…. Steups… 4!
15. When people say “what was the big deal” you just smile and think to yourself they would never understand.
