My poor kids, now full-grown adults, because they lived all over the country
when they were little (2 through 6), today use the word soda-pop when asking or
ordering the same.
When we were living in Boston, one of our girls at age 2 learned the word
"tonic" to mean that canned or bottled liquid refreshment. Then, while 3, she
lived for a year in Wichita Falls, TX and picked up a good Texas drawl from the
preschool locals. It was quite cute, at least to her parents, to hear her ask,
"Ahh wahnt a tahnik."
