The Colloquial Times

Overheard my senior year of college - an exchange between two acquaintances (one was in Mississippi for the first time):

HE: "I'm fixing to run to the store"
SHE: "You're FIXING to? What's that supposed to mean?"
HE: "It's a colloquialism."
SHE: "Well, I didn't live in the colloquial times."
