Dear Ignoramus I overheard in the mall today,
Please learn something. Take it to heart, and never ever forget this. You cope.
You can clean up, mop up, sweep up, or keep up. You can eat up, drink up, and light up if you don’t care for your health. You can soup your car up. You can wind your clock up. You can back your files up. You can wash up after you cook. You can keep up with the current events. You can dry up if you run out of ideas.
You don’t cope up. You cope.
