Haha!!! I had to try this quite a few times before I figured it out, too!

I say cue-pon (singular) but I say coo-pons (plural).

I am a weirdo.

Speaking of up north.... DH told me something yesterday that I thought was interesting. He said there have only been two times that he has heard a certain expression-- once from me and once on the radio yesterday. So I was wondering if it's a Midwest thing. Let's say you're referring to the space behind the back seat in a minivan or station wagon. What do you call it? Everyone I know back home has always called it the "way back." He thinks it's funny.

I don't know if I call it anything. I just call it the back. Or the cargo. I call the seats back seat and backback seat.

Even if it's behind the seats in a van or station wagon?

It's funny to see what other people call stuff...

Coo-pon here. Cue-pon drives me crazy, not sure why.

And all my coo-pon purchased groceries go "in the way back".

I say coo-pon. The way back for me would either be the back seat in a van or the trunk in a van or large SUV!

Then again the word wicked is a part of my daily vocabulary! Go New England!
