A little Trini trivia... "Liming" is we ting

"Liming" has been called the art of doing nothing, socially. In the New Oxford American Dictionary, a Trinidadian “lime” is defined as doing anything, anywhere in company in a relaxing way. Others would call it “hanging out”. Whatever you call it, liming is way of life on the islands of Trinidad and Tobago.
Referring to the art of doing nothing while sharing food, drink, conversation and laughter, liming is an important part of the country’s island culture. In fact, it’s not uncommon for locals to say something like “let’s go lime” to mean “let’s chill or hangout.” (Bing)

So, a 'lime' for us means more than just the fruit. There are beach limes, down-the-road limes, backyard limes, river limes, bar limes, friend-house limes, stay-at-home limes, etc which were usually daily activities for many (regardless of the weather), before Covid. Things have been returning to normal though...
