in thread I refer to a non-specified carbonated beverage as a:

Awesome link.++

I don't care for calling it a "coke" as often times that is what I get.. and not to start a debate, but it is not my drink of choice, when wanting a soda.

Anyhow, I believe I ended up calling it a "soda" because of the proximity of where I grew up to here. (which surprisingly your link has both types of folks in that region, as there aren't that many people there, and most of the ones I knew FWIR called it "soda" as well).

The adult folk used to drive out to Hooper Springs and mix Kool-Aid™ with the water and call force it on the children as "soda" (or "glorified Kool-Aid™").

(please excuse my reminiscing)

    Personally, I'm not much for cola either. Give me tapwater, or root beer, or skim milk, or Dr Pepper, or Kool-Aid, or Mt Dew, or Sprite, or tea (brewed strong, black with nothing, black with sugar and vanilla, or green with sugar and ginger), or something. I can drink cola, but I don't get excited about it, and I'd rather drink something else.
