Pronunciation: cup-oh-flaj

Sentence: Linda carefully placed her cup in the box, the one she kept her 'tissues' in and headed in the direction of the ladies. She diverted to the stairwell to the next floor, walked back across, and down again straight into the kitchen. Tea made, she carefully crept back up the stairs, back across to the other side and down again, to make it look like she'd been to the loo. Once she was back at her desk she carefully took the mug of tea out of the box and enjoyed the moment. She had become quite adept in the execution of cuppouflage; she wasn't going to hang around making brews for all and sundy that's for sure.
