>I suppose it's a sign of matrimonial durability that I still--after 38
years of marriage--find her usage annoying!

I'm not sure I could be so durable. If my wife starts to say "soda"
instead of "pop," I'm calling it quits!

THAT would thoroughly confuse the issue: "Would you like cola quits
or orange quits with your meal?"
