I was just wondering today about some sayings/phrases. Are they tied to a certain area, or group.

Such as:

I need to go to the store to trade. (get grocery)

How much did you draw this week? (income)

'm sure there are more of these around. What are some that you're familiar with?

"all set"

Round here, it probably means "yeah, I'm doing ok"

In New York, it means I'm done. So when your good looking waitress at Del Monicos in Utica approaches you and your half-eaten cannoli and asks you if you're all set, you'd better say NO. I still regret letting that one slip away. The cannoli, of course.

"fixin to"

Getting ready to (directly)

one bit is 12 1/2 cents, so two bits is a quarter. Making four bits .50 cents.... Did I win?
