Словарик 1. Dime

Dime coin... Or did you ever watch a kid in a candy store who had just been given a dime by his mother? All that candy and only 10 cents! ...

Dime - a coin of the US and Canada, worth one tenth of a dollar or ten cents.

a dime a dozen - very cheap or common

Don't get subtle, Buster. Subtle guys are a dime a dozen. All they do is make trouble.

People who can write good books are not a dime a dozen.

Из книги "Экономика для всех", которую я почитываю время от времени, т.к. она у меня нормальная такая книжка, не электронная, а значит - лежит всегда в одном и том же месте. Угадайте, в каком. 🙂

  • В ЖЖ один мой френд откомментил, что это слово знал исключительно из песни puttin’ on the ritz)

    А ведь песня гениальная, решила выучить тоже:

    If you’re blue and you don’t know where to go to
    why don’t you go where fashion sits,
    Puttin’ on the ritz.

    Different types who wear a day coat, pants with stripes
    and cutaway coat, perfect fits,
    Puttin’ on the ritz.

    Dressed up like a million dollar trouper
    Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper)

    Come let’s mix where Rockefellers walk with sticks
    or umberellas in their mitts,
    Puttin’ on the ritz.

    Have you seen the well-to-do up and down Park Avenue
    On that famous thoroughfare with their noses in the air
    High hats and Arrow collars white spats and lots of dollars
    Spending every dime for a wonderful time

    If you’re blue and you don’t know where to go to
    why don’t you go where fashion sits,
    Puttin’ on the ritz.
    Puttin’ on the ritz.
    Puttin’ on the ritz.
