"I'm all set..."

It became apparent to my sister and I on a recent trip to Mississippi that "All set" should be added to the Mainah Glossary. When asked if we need any more ice tea, we would respond: "I'm all set..." I remembered after a few blank faces that "All set" is not used widely outside of New England. Usually, people would respond: "No, thank you" to that sort of question.

"All set" means "I'm good," "I'm finished," "No, thank you" all wrapped into one.
