Called in sick to work today, told them I played a cold. They understood and confirmed the two words are interchangeable before firing me.

You have a cold.

You play catch.

You have a conniption.

You play fetch with your dog.

How can you have a catch?

"Want to have a catch"
"No you can keep it"

And I say both "on line" and "in line". If I'm referring to myself I say 'on' and if I'm asking someone I'll say 'in'.

Did I miss the soda, pop, and Coke argument as well? :-D

Clearly this is a dialect discussion.

"Pop" is correct if you're talking about your dad. If you're talking about carbonated beverages, the correct term is "soda." :^

we would also accept the term soda pop... but Coke is brand specific.

I'd have a soda.

More specifically a Coke.

If I was having a pop, that means drinking has commenced. ;-D

I think it's Georgia where Coke means any carbonated beverage.

If I wanted to play catch with you, I'd just say, "Wanna throw?"
Be excellent to each other.

WRONG.

The correct answer is "soft drink".
