Pop or Soda?

Have you noticed my little try at having a poll?  Look in the column to the right. Here's what I want to know...

Do you call this pop or soda?

When I was a girl, I read a lot. Sometimes I read in books about people having a soda. I thought it was something I'd never experienced before. I drank pop on occasion and rather enjoyed it. However, I always wanted to know what soda would taste like. It sounded soooooo refreshing.

When I found out that soda was just pop, I was kind of disappointed. Really? Was it pop trying to be uppity or what? 

Our son-in-law calls it soda. I love him anyway. He was born in New York State so he has a right to Eastern ways I guess. OK, almost everyone now does call it soda but there was a time when NO ONE out West called it that, no one that I knew anyway. 

What do you all think about all of this? 

I know what you are thinking! You are wondering why in the world you wasted so much time reading this dumb post, aren't you? 

I really wanted to try the poll thingy. That's all.

Coke no matter what the brand is a distinctly Atlanta thing. My grandfather called it soda pop, but he was referring to RC Cola. I honestly didn't know that Pepsi existed until I went to college in South Florida.

I grew up in WNY and we call it pop there. So it's only that eastern half of NY (before Rochester) that calls in soda! :-)
