What is up??
 
A reminder that there is one word in the English language that can be a noun, verb, adjective, adverb and preposition.

Do you know what it is?







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 understandUP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wakeUP?

At a meeting, why does a topic comeUP?

Why do we speakUP, and why are the officersUP for election and why is itUPto the secretary to writeUPa report?

We callUPour friends,… brightenUPa room,

polishUPthe silver… warmUPthe leftovers…and cleanUPthe kitchen. We lockUPthe house, and fixUPthe old car.


At other times, this little word has real special meaning.

People stirUPtrouble…, lineUPfor tickets…, workUPan appetite.., and thinkUPexcuses.

To be dressed is one thing but to be dressedUPis special.

And thisUPis confusing:

A drain must be openedUP because it is stoppedUP.

We openUPa store in the morning, but we close itUPat night.

We seem to be pretty mixedUP aboutUP!


To be knowledgeable about the proper uses ofUP,

lookUPthe wordUPin the dictionary.

In a desk-sized dictionary, it takesUPalmost 1/4 of the page

and can addUPto about thirty definitions.


If you areUPto it, you might try buildingUPa list of the many waysUPis used.

It will takeUPa lot of your time, but if you don't giveUP, you may windUPwith a hundred or more.


When it threatens to rain, we say it is cloudingUP.

When the sun comes out, we say it is clearingUP.

When it rains, the earth soaks itUP.

When it does not rain for a while, things dryUP.

One could go on and on, but I'll wrap itUP, for now . . . my time isUP!


Oh . . . one more thing:

What is the first thing you do in the morning and the last thing you do at night?


U

P !


Did that one crack youUP?

Don't screwUP.
