Growing up in Oklahoma

we always called it pop. Then I went in the Navy and learned to call it soda or soda-pop. After getting out of the service I worked in Houston TX and started calling it coke. Until my company sent me to Scotland. While in the hotel there I called a place that delivered hamburgers and ordered one. I also asked if they had coke. I got an "uhhhhhh......" - I quickly changed it to soda-pop and they knew what I was talking about! (must have thought I was trying to order cocaine!)

Now - I don't drink any of those concoctions! Decaf coffee, green tea, or water for about 99% of the time. (mostly the later two)

Now look up what the word "fag" used to mean!
