Getting ready to do something-I'm fixin' to do it.
A carbonated beverage is a soda. If I want something in particular, I ask for it by name, e.g. a Coke, a Pespi, etc.
As for the second, I don't use any wording. I just tell people what I plan to do. I might say "I'm going to..."
Yes, I'm a Yankee. Both of my parents were raised in Philadelphia (not the one in Mississippi) and so was I.
When I was a youngster and be'in from the Mid West we'd call soda - sodie? I've been schooled on that! And I also learnt that a carbonated beverage has a whole nutther aspect when it comes to "Mixers". If you ask "Where's the soda", here they send you to the baking soda aisle.

It's "pop" and that will be the end of this!
I thought "pop" was that Michael Jackson crap
When drinking a carbonated beverage, do you wear one glove for no apparent reason?
