I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Silent O unless I'm talking to a child or an anti. Then prominent O for the cute effect.
The O might sound more like a grunt. If I say it with my finger in my nose up to my knuckle. That would be more like Uhpossum..
