    Also, ask her how she spells 'potato.' Slip in a Dan Quayle joke and see if she finds that funny. Might be an old soul.

    I would at least give her kudos for being concerned about proper pronunciation (even if she just wanted to one up you).

    But I think both are acceptable in this case. Long e sounds "more correct" to me since I think coyote is a Spanish word and they would pronounce the long e. But I'm cool with going with an English approach if that's your habit.
