Soda. Definitely soda. Pop doesn't cut it. Neither does poda sop. Then again, where I come from it was called altogether another thing, closer to "soft drink". But that's way in the south. Here in the border we swear by soda. And, to me, Coke and Pepsi taste EXACTLY the same. So I've no preferences there, if I want a COLA, but as far as sodas go, give me Root Beer. A&B's, Barq's, Mickey Mouse's, Whateva's, but make it root, and make it beer. And if it's a root beer float what you're offering me, well that's so much better. Dr. Pepper I like, and will take instead of any cola if no root beer is available. But I can never ever ever figure out what Dr. Pepper tastes like. There, I've plugged it. After that, and still ahead of cola, I like apple soda, then grapefruit soda, then orange soda. Lemon soda I can't stand. Neither sprite nor Seven-Up. Those clear sodas taste just like sugared water to me. Now Hawaiian Punch I like, specially if I feel like I need to develop diabetes, which my family is prone to, but then again Hawaiian Punch has no gas so cannot be properly called a soda. More of a punch, but I guess that's why it's called the way it's called.
So, long story short, soda, it's soda. Not pop, not poda sop, not refresco. soda.
There, I've said it and by my words I stand, so help me God.
Faith is what credulity becomes when it finally achieves escape velocity from the constraints of terrestrial discourse- reasonableness, internal coherence, civility, and candor. Thus, the men who commited the atrocities of September 11 were neither cowards nor lunatics of any sort, but Men of Faith- perfect faith- and this, it must finally be acknowleged, is a terrible thing to be.
