Southern Thesaurus — Entry #8
On the Verge/About to/Preparing to/Planning on/Getting Ready to = Fixin’
That’s right. It’s a verb.
As in – “I’m fixin’ to get some lunch” or “I’m fixin’ to go to the beach” or “I’m fixin’ to fix my truck, because it quit.” Or maybe not that last one. Got a little carried away.
According to this shirt, Texas really likes this saying as well!
Right now I’m fixin’ to watch a 2-hour commercial-filled fun-filled Bachelorette with a big ol’ bowl of Scotty’s famous popcorn!!! (I think Constantine’s out, like Seacrest.)
Seriously though, I hope I never say “fixin’.” The North wins this one – without a doubt!
p.s. I owe you another blog. Maybe I’ll work on it during The Bachelorette’s gazillion commercials!
p.s.s. Once I get to Southern Thesaurus entry #10, I’m quizzing your @$$es. So you better study up, kids!
