If your friend says "there's a couple of weird cats outside", how many weird cats could be outside without you saying "that's not (just) a couple of weird cats":

@urusan If I'm with a friend that I can be a pedant with without it being an issue, my answer changes from "from 2-4" to "exactly 2"

@urusan a couple is two. A few is three to four. Then it's a bunch, many, a ton, etc

@natecull No, that's our neighbor with a whole bunch of weird cats.

It's definitely more than a couple for sure!
