Do You Ope?
Growing up here in the Midwest I never really realized it wasn't something others not from around here don't really use on a daily basis as myself and many others do.
A word that is of Midwestern origins and is partly related to Midwestern politeness. It is also a word that can have serval different meanings and uses. Even the Urban Dictionary offers more that one definition for the word.
Ope, excuse me
Ope, I forgot my keys
Ope, I was supposed to turn there
The possibilities are really endless.
Those not from the Midwest may say things like whoops or even up-a-dazy instead.
I guess it could even be looked at as that of a reflex too.
After watching the hilarious School of Ope, I'm far more aware of just how much I say OPE.
How about you? Do you say Ope?
"When in doubt, Ope it out."
