Coffee for me. Gotten hooked on frappes recently.
So why is English name for person who doesn't drink alcohol so silly anyway? And what it as to do with tee and total?
It gets confusing everytime I forget what it is in English and end up directly translating Finnish term for it in English... "No, I'm not that kind of absolutist" :P
It's not really clear where the word teetotaler come from. One story attributes it to a fellow known as Dicky Turner in 1833, who spoke with a stutter and tried to say the word "total."
Also, hey, everyone. Glad I found this neck of the woods (Old Folks' Home I mean) I'm naturally a very modest speaker in real life so it appeals to me.
Grew up in an Irish family in Boston, going to college in New York City, and I still don't have much a taste for alcohol at the moment. It just doesn't appeal to me. I love me some strong black coffee, though.
I miss root beer :< You can hardly find it anywhere here in the good old Germanlands; Subway used to have some but they stopped a couple of years ago and I'm still sad about it...
On the other hand,some pretty nice local stuff exists here too at least;for example my favorite brand of cola called Fritz Kola! It's super caffeinated though, so I can't drink too much of it.
Spezi is nice,too! Does america have that?
That is a bummer. In the city I live in there is a chain of restaurants that makes their own root beer in house. You can get a growler of the stuff and each locations will taste different as each has a different brew master.
The major brands of cola here in the US are just Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Cola, and RC Cola, if you can call it a major brand. It's just about the only brand I can think of aside from the Big Two that isn't tied to a specific store.
Well besides Pepsi and Coca-Cola I can think of two other bigger brands of it here! Afri-Cola and Fritz-Kola. Never heard of RC before! Our store brand cola is...surprisingly decent,actually.
Dandelion and burdock, Irn-Bru (yeah, I know: don't ask) and squashes or barley waters...
If you want to know the daddy recipe of root beer, it's most likely D&B.

How well does it match the trope?
