So there’s this little bunch of words, most prominent of which are “Couple”, “Few”, and “Several.” I hate it when I ask somebody about a quantity, and they answer with one of these.
“Hey Bob, how many pages is the essay supposed to be?”
“I dunno, a few”
Gosh, that gets on my nerves. So I’ve come up with a system:
Couple = 2-3
Few = 3-4
Several = 4-5
Bunch = 5-6
So there you go, our new universal system, hopefully.
