WANOne that you can have fun with…

I’m sure you will enjoy this. Here is one word in the English language that can be a noun, verb,

adj, adv, prep.

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 and 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 and the last thing  you do at night?


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!
