I just don't like the term sugary drinks. I get why they did it, but it's like people saying supper, I just want to throat strike like an 80's van damme baddie.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

So far, they've not taxed the air, but one thing you'll enjoy is the "soda tax" on carbonated beverages here ....

Does that count for Lager too?

In Alabama they are all "cola". Regardless of flavour. "Want a cola?" - "Yup" - "RC, Mountain Dew, A&W or ...?"

You really are a polyglot. Aren't you?..
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

In Texas it's all coke. And they mean Dr Pepper. It's an ugly regionalism.

In some places, it's just "pop."  Like your dad.

I know that in Indiana, Texas, and Nevada (maybe New Mexico), any carbonated beverage is "coke".

You want a coke?
Sure.
What kind?
Hmm, ginger ale.
