Now just a little bit of info… I was born in Illinois and lived there until I was 7. Then I lived in Utah. Now I live in Nevada. Apparently regional things can make a difference in not only how you say things, but what you call things. I’ve always known that I call the “carbonated bubbly drink” by a name more popular in the mid-west than here in the west as I’ve had people question me on that one before.
My voice is also a little gravelly/nasal today because I’m still recovering from bronchitis!
But I thought this was kind of fun… Play along! Leave a note if you do!
