moncler bambino outlet As fond as I am of the undeniable onscreen comedic sparks between Batiste and Colbert, I moncler outlet serravalle do not love that it was described moncler outlet as “ope there it is.” He didn’t say, “whoomp, there it is,” quoting Tag Team. It was “ope.” And as I have come to discover, that “word” has clawed into our daily lives without any explanation. For me, it’s easily one of the most popular sounds I make everyday. moncler bambino outlet

piumini moncler uomo When I accidentally step in somebody’s way “Ope. My bad.” piumini moncler uomo

moncler saldi When someone unexpectedly opens a door for me “Ope. Thank you.” moncler saldi

moncler saldi outlet When, like Batiste, I know I need to say a sound to convey the quality of something but an actual word doesn’t seem to fit “Ope. Here we moncler outlet online shop go.” moncler saldi outlet

“Ope” moncler uomo has essentially earned multiple meanings while still remaining entirely undefined. Still, a few people have tried to make some sense of it.

An Urban Dictionary entry called it an American Midwest thing. On Reddit, users across the world claimed they made the noise.

moncler outlet serravalle “It clearly shares a resemblance with ‘oops’ (and in fact is sometimes spelled ‘oop’),” linguist Ben Zimmer explained to me, offering some clarity. “But when it’s said as ‘ope,’ it could also be thought of as the ‘oh’ interjection plus a final ‘ moncler donna p,’ the same kind of ‘ p’ that we hear at the end of ‘yep,’ ‘nope,’ and ‘welp.'” moncler outlet serravalle

moncler outlet online uomo “I just felt sorry for you,” Adams told me. “Because trying to figure out the etymology of it, all you’ve really got to go on is just the speculation. moncler saldi outlet I see why you were scratching your forehead about this one and if piumini moncler saldi you went off to look in dictionaries you wouldn’t find any useful information about it, but that’s piumini moncler scontatissimi usually a sign that there is no useful information.” moncler outlet online moncler bambino outlet uomo

moncler bambino saldi And so my life remains doomed as I’m cursed to wander the streets, never knowing when I’ll accidentally bump into someone and utter a nonsense syllable for which there is “no useful information.” moncler bambino saldi

I do not understand why I do this and may never figure that out. All I can say is that if this ends up wrecking your life as well, I can promise if you ever run into me in real life, I’ll be sure to say, “Ope, sorry.” piumini moncler outlet.
