    I wonder if anyone ever says, "The white, powdery kind."?

    KY is very pretty state/commonwealth, especially in the fall. Enjoy the time you have there. As for the coke thing, I hear it all the time. Since I'm a coke drinker, it's no big thing. However, if I liked pepsi, I'd be pissed. Blide is right about the sweet tea. Sweet tea is a glass full of ice and sugar with a little bit of dark water in it.

    I grew up in the South, but I don't think I encountered iced tea until a birthday party I attended in 4th or 5th grade. Odd, considering that in almost any restaurant in the South, 80% of the diners are drinking tea. I don't like tea although I manage to choke down unsweet tea when it's served, but I won't touch sweet tea.

    Iced tea seems to be more a Texas thing. Related to that though, I've learned there's definitely a difference between sweet tea and sweetened tea. I prefer the latter just because it isn't as sweet.
