I'm required to keep the fridge stocked with "Cokes," which includes a variety of sodas. "Hey, we need to get more Cokes!" "What kind?" "Diet Dr. Pepper."

This makes perfect sense to me.

When I began dating, the standard date was a . . . Coke date. At that time, Dr Pepper was my drink of choice.

"Cold drink" was interchangeable with wanting a carbonated beverage: "Mom, I want a cold drink."

P.S. I can handle it being called "soda" but, for some reason, "pop" sounds really wrong.
