     What makes a place call certain things those things?  Midwesterners call soda, pop, while people where I grow up call every kind of soft drink a Coke, even if it's not really a Coke.
     I've noticed that guys in Texas call their guy friends their "buddies."  I never heard guys call other guys their buddies where I grew up or where I lived before I moved to Texas.  But in Texas I hear it all the time:  "I'm meeting up with a buddy of mine" or "He's a buddy I went to college with."  I wonder why that is.  I used to think "buddy" was a word little kids used.  Apparently I was wrong.
