Yeah... it's supposed to be.  *lol*

The furthest south I've been is Memphis.... Now there's some good sweet tea.  :P

I clean out my milk gallons as I finish them and make my own sweet tea in them. I'm addicted to the stuff.

I make iced tea for my family too, but it's made with green tea and a variety of other herbal teas, then lightly sweetened :)

Yeah, i find that I experiment more in the summer than the winter. Wintertime is sort of when the sweet tea is the run of the mill stuff, but I tryout hot teas that are apple spice and pumpkin cinnamon and peppermint raspberry and all that.

My mom makes good sweet tea... But I can't make it worth anything.  *lol*

I like green tea too... really any kind of tea.  Sweet tea is pretty.... rare for me.  Maybe a pitcher a week?  :P

I have a Midland accent, although looking at the list below for how you were on others it looks like I'm borderline "The West" as well.

*pouts*

I am NOT from the Inland North.  I have never been to Wisconsin and I have only visited Michigan/Chicago for a weekend.  And I do not call soda, "pop".  It's soda.

*glares at the test*

I was born and raised in Missouri.  I was expecting to get the Midland answer.  Curse me and my diction.   :(

Midland for me as well, though, I'm pretty sure I still have a lingering southern accent. Especially with some words.

And... for the record, I'm with Ket on the explanation for 'coke.'  It's all coke until you are narrowing it down to the flavor. 

And don't even try to pretend that Pepsi is an acceptable substitute for a coke.

Don't be silly... by your own definition Pepsi is 'coke'... how can 'coke' not be an acceptable substitute for coke?

I think its mostly a geographical thing, the closer to Atlanta you are, the least likely that Pepsi is even in consideration when someone says, "Do you want a coke?"

We just... didn't drink Pepsi. Ever.

Thank you!! It was time for a change.

I got the Midland.
Which is funny because, I'm from Alabama. However, my dad was an English professor. ^_^

According to this quiz, I may be mistaken for a Canadian.

Funny how that works out...

Well I've heard a fair number, but I'll admit I can't recall if I've heard them say it that way on TV or in RL.

I usually don't notice accents as much unless I am personally speaking with someone...I tend to really enjoy others' voices and the way they speak.  I have a Canadian friend who I've known for six years and "aboot" is something I've teased him about...as he teases me about words like "taught".

Midland for me, too. No surprise there, really, I'm from Southern Illinois--one of the places it suggests.

And I know from experience that Illinois has quite a wide spectrum along its length. The southern regions bear little resemblance to the tri-state area. In some ways it doesn't feel like the same state.
