I like free soda (or 'pop', as it is more correctly called.)

I suppose that's debateable as well. :)

(although being a native of Western PA, I call it pop too)

LOL! I call it soda (having lived in Philadelphia for a while) and it drives everyone crazy around here! :)

I live near Tina, and I call it "soda pop" (having lived in central PA half of my life). ...And yes it drives people around here crazy! We also have "buggies" instead of shopping carts, which drives ME crazy. lol.

Is that thing that opens on the front of your car called a 'bonnet'? ;)

I think the next map they should make is for large sandwiches. Do you call them hoagies, subs, grinders, or other?

It's been done. I'm Googling like crazy to find it but I know I've seen a map of it somewhere, I'm just having a tough time finding it.

Backing up a bit, to the no-re-entry thing...

I've been to Kings Island for the last two Friday nights.

Two nights ago wasn't too bad because the temperature dropped before the sun did, and it dropped enough that I wanted my jacket.

But a week ago, it was a pain in the hindquarters. I got to the park before the sun went down, and the temperature was downright balmy. What I did not expect was that it was going to stay warm all night long. So I carried a jacket with me, putting it on and sweating it out when enjoying the attractions, and carrying it down the midway.

Had re-entry been permitted, that jacket would have stayed in the car, and only come out if I needed it...which, it turned out, I didn't, even after Midnight.

So there's my vote: No re entry = pain in the butt.

As for drinks, I'll mention only this...

I was recently in a park where the drink price was $1.50. Over the course of the day, I spent about $9 on drinks. (It was a hot day).

I was recently in a park where the drink price was $3.50. Over the course of the day, I spent about $0 on drinks. (It was a hot day).

As far as your drink anecdote goes, that has been my exact purchasing behavior all summer long.

I spent almost 10 year of my childhood in Boston and surrounding areas. I still call it soda.

We should start a club for people in Ohio that call it soda - I even have a name picked out already. Get this one - "Club Soda"
