It's okay to call facial tissue Kleenex because they all serve essentially the same function, come in the same form factor, etc. However, "coke" is not RC cola, is not Sprite, is not any of Jones' sodas. :evil: :evil: :evil:

EDIT: typo


my first instinct is 'coke' but I've learned to say soda seeing as how the only one I ever drink is Dr. Pepper. wouldn't want to betray my brand loyalty.

I've grown up around all sode being called either 'soda', 'pop', or 'soda pop'. I have relatives who call anything cola 'coke', and some that even call a refrigerator an 'ice box'.

I could do a great erotic story on these few sentences. :-D

and I also grew up saying, pop. In fact, at resteraunts here in Michigan they'll ask, "What kind of pop would you like?"

I do recall something hilarious from my high school basketball-playing days. (Okay, technically speaking, I was on the team, primarily to foul when the whiny starters would complain about the other team being rough. :roll: )

Once or twice a season a parent or supporter would take the whole team out to a "steak dinner". The options would be steak (duh), chicken or shrimp. Three or four of the black players would ALWAYS get excited about eating shrimp, like it was some precious commodity that cost $800/pound, not $7 for tiny fried non-de-veined shitty fare. When getting dressed after practice, they would be talking up the shrimp, such as, "Oh, maaan, I'm gonna get me some SHRIMP!" "Oh, HELL YEAH, SHRIMP!"

Mind you, this was years before Forrest Gump came out.

I love Bubba Gump's. yes, it's commercialized and has shitty drinks but the food is actually quite good. Just not the coconut shrimp. Two things that should never be together, imo.

:P Yeah, I'll admit I used to think shrimp (or scrimp) was an expensive commodity.

If it's any consolation, the coach made fun of me for eating a rare steak.

And he also teased me in front of the whole team during team pictures because I had back hair.

And he would also make comments when showing us a new play or move that I would be the first one to screw it up.

Man, my coach really didn't like me, now that I think about it.

Oh, no, I never frowned upon them! I just don't get the appeal of shrimp.

Except that one guy that asked for rides all the damn time. For some reason, he would ask me over anyone else, and he lived on the ass-opposite side of town.

Nate's inner blackness prevents him from looking down. He's like the White Shadow.

my h.s. coach called me "Two-Back" due to my, let's say, less-than-fully-sculpted pec muscles... :oops: :x

but i was deadly from distance. 8) :-D
