Have any of you encountered that? Yes, almost everyone I know uses "coke" for all non-a carb bevs. Except, of course, those East Tennesseans and others who use "dope." The term is alive and well in rural areas, including the residential areas of Knoxville settled by rural residents moving to the city, mostly for work. One day at our Fellini Kroger's (we really call it that!), I walked up to a checkstand. Someone hadput groceries down tthen gone back for something else. As I waited, I saw a woman walking back with some large (2-liter, at least) Cokes. As she approached me, she said apologetically, "I went to get me some more brown dopes." There are also orange dopes, orange dopers, etc. Bethany
