Word for the Travel Wise (02/28/06)
Today's word is a slang word used in Trinidad & Tobago:
lime - to hang out in a group
The official term for hanging out with your pals, boyfriend, girlfriend, family or whoever is 'lime.' I recall from my very first visit trying to understand the meaning of the word and the depths to a lime and where one can occur. While it often felt as if people were just loitering in the streets and on corners of closed neighborhood shops they were actually 'bustin' ah lime.' My friend and I took part in some liming of our own, sipping on an Apple J and posting up against a wall. So in short yuh can 'lime' at a beach, fete, house, or against the wall.
