An adjective, verb, and noun all in one. In the verb form, dime can mean many such as "to chill" "to be relaxed" or "to be doing anything in general." Doing any of the previous would be referred to as "diming out." As an adjective, you can also be "dimed out" after a long night of excitement or when you decide to take a break during the day. Someone may ask how you feel, and you can simply reply, "I'm just a little dimed out." Dime as a noun is simple, referring obviously to the unit of currency. To initiate a dime out session, you must ask the time. If in concurrence that it is dime time, the person you asked may respond "It's dime o'clock." Also, to conclude a dime out session, you must say, "It is now quarter past a dime." This clever expression would show that you have dimed out for a little too long and it is now time to return to your previous task. Dime is not to get confused with the expression "to dime on someone." This definition is not the same as the old drop the dime and call the cops expression.
