    in my mind I think the word "soda" but when I say it out loud it's usually "coke" but not just coke, any variety of soda is "coke". I'm still midwestern in my mind, but southern on the outside, having grown up in the coke capitol.

    Funny story about sprinkles.

    Here you can get a donut with sprinkles, a friend's cousin from New Zealand came and wasn't able to order the donut she wanted because they call sprinkles hundreds and thousands in New Zealand.

    In Pittsburgh or maybe all of PA it would be a liquor store or beer distributer. You can't buy liquor and beer in the same place.

    Jimmies for ice cream! Sometimes I'll say sprinkles.

    We call them Jimmies and sprinkles in MA too. I try to say chocolate sprinkles though, because I was once told that they were called "Jimmies" after the Jim Crow laws, because they are brown. So, even if that isn't true, I don't want to risk it!
