Antoinette Liming with Family
Lime -lime (verb), lime (noun), liming (noun)
“Lime” is a Trinidadian & Tobagonian word, which
means to socialize and hang out usually in a
public place with friends, enjoying the scene.
The word is associated with sitting under a lime
tree, or having nothing more demanding to do
than squeezing limes.
The fact that there is a specific *word* for
socializing and hanging out emphasizes how
important this activity is, gives it high priority,
and makes people more prone to do it on a
regular basis. Every Trinidadian & Tobagonian’s
primary form of entertainment is... LIMING

and family at the end of the day?
