...when you've dedicated part of your backyard to a patch of white sand, just so you can stick your toes in it & reminisce (a few palms & ferns thrown in for good measure)
when you search the aisles at the gro store for coconut milk, trying to make stew beans & rice
when all your screensavers & wallpaper are tropical settings
when you get to the bottom of that last bottle of rum you brought back...geez, gotta go!!
