Which brings us to sellotape... I have never heard anyone refer to it
here in the southern US, in reference to any brand, as anything but
scotch tape. Then again, we refer to all brands and flavors of soda (or
pop, if you prefer) as coke.
I haven't smoked for 1 year, 1 month and 3 days,
saving $1,797.37 and not smoking 11,982.51 cigarettes.
