Two letter word with many meanings

UP


Read until the end.....you'll laugh....
This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other
two-letter word, and that word is 'UP.' It is listed in the
dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v].

It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky
or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we
wake UP?

At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do
we speak UP, and why are the
officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to
write UP a report? We call UP our friends,
brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We
lock UP the house and fix UP the old
car.

At other times this little word has real special
meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for
tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.

To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is
special. And this UP is confusing: A
drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP.

We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at
night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP !

To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look UP the word UP in the
dictionary.. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions

If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways
UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give
UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more.

When it threatens to rain, we say it is
clouding UP . When the sun comes out
we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it
soaks UP the earth. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP. One could go
on & on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now ........my time is UP !

Oh....one more thing:
What is the first thing you do in the morning & the last thing you do at
night?

U
P !

Did that one crack you UP?

Don't screw UP. Send this on to everyone you look UP in your address
book..or not...it's UP to you.

Now
I'll shut UP!
