Poll question: Name that beverage!!
Edited on Sun Sep-14-03 05:04 PM by dolo amber
Depending on where you live it could be any of the following...what sort of lovely beverage do you enjoy? :)

Me personally, I'm a soda drinker since forever.




























Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. I drink water but it was soda around here
Anything bubbly - like coke and pepsi or whatever - is always referred to as soda.

3. I am from the Midwest but I have hillbilly blood running through me
The hillbilly part says Pop and the Midwestern part of me calls it a Soda.

My Aunt use to own a grocery store in WV and she would keep some of her POP in ice in a barrel and it was so cold. Damn now I have a craving for an Orange Crush or a Grape Soda pop.

10. as my grandfather would say
sodee water.

He was from the very rural part of Alabama, and actually has some Middle English speech patterns, which is super cool.

Best example I can find is, for him, the past tense of "help" is "holp".

11. Sodie-pop
Purposely started calling it that in college as a result of being asked this question by several people. I still call it that just so I will be telling the truth next time someone asks me whether I say soda or pop.
