Maybe someone can help me out here. What is the generic name for drinks like Sprite and 7 Up? Here they would be lemonade. No one I have asked over there seems to know, and I usually just ask for a Sprite and say it's okay if they only have 7 Up.
Shopping bag. Or plastic bag.
Pram. Pusher sometimes if the baby sits upright.
Roll (or sub if it is from Subway).
Well I used to think of all soft drinks as "cokes" but now with the whole coke/pepsi rivalry I always say coke to mean coke and then sprite or pepsi or dr. pepper or barqs or whatever...
