I grew up in West Virginia where my whole family drinks "pop", Pepsi, to be exact. I went to college and picked up the saying "soda" instead. Okay, so now I've moved to Georgia and EVERYTHING is referred to as COKE & this weekend I learned why:
- I live in Columbus, Georgia -- where the inventor of Coca Cola, John Pemberton, was from & where he began inventing this new "cola".
- I live 90 miles away from Atlanta, Georgia -- where the Coke Head Quarters are located.
This was such a neat experience-- I highly suggest it for anyone who's in the Atlanta area & has a morning or an afternoon to kill!
Here are some photos from my little trip:
