You Say Coupon, I Say Coupon - Aloha!

I speak English. As in the Queen's language. This explains why I felt familiar when I visited Canada awhile back, because the words and markings were just as we would spell and pronounce them, unlike in USA.

So Coupon - How do you say it?

I do the baby talk and say 'Cou (coopon) on' :)

Like 'Could', you wouldn't say 'queueld' now would ya? So why do you say: cuepon?
 THIS

What's your foodie thing for this week?

And a little about me :)


1. What is your favorite Christmas decoration in your house?

I like the Christmas lights

2. Do you finish your Christmas shopping early or are you a last minute type?

I don't do Christmas shopping. I never have the money, so I usually buy sales during the year and hide them for the kids. :)

3. When do you turn on your heat?

There's no specific time. Right now it's set at 69. If it gets down to 69, then it will come on. I freeze easily. I'm an island girl.

4. Do you ever wish your blog was private?

I thought it would be when I first started. I really didn't think anyone would read what I wrote.

5. Do you put your deodorant on before of after you put on your shirt?

Both. :)

  2. I say it like you do. It really depend on what part of the country you are in as to enunciation. Here in the west we are probably closer to the Canadian pronounciation.

  3. I say 'cue'pon. Never knew it made a difference. I guess it depends how it is pronounced in the area you grew up in. However, I liked your explanation as to why I should pronounce it 'coo'pon. So will try to correct my way of pronouncing it from now on.

    I keep my room about 70 degrees in the cooler weather. I also crochet, therefore I have lots of afghans laying around that I wrap up in to stay cozy warm in the Winter, while I curl up with a good book.

  4. I say it the same way you do! I've never heard anyone say it as "que"pon! That's interesting!

  6. I like my heater at 70 if I had a choice. I pronounce coupon like you do, I never noticed anyone else's pronunciation.

  7. My favorite decoration for our Christmas tree is our handmade ornaments. I started this tradition of making glass ornaments with my kids after my divorce, and the kids love them too.

    I pronounce coupon the same way you do.

  8. Haha, I say it 'cue'pon. I guess because I've always heard it this way. Of course, it doesn't bother me either way. I love that we all have our differences.
    Have a great week.
