Two Little Letters

Words, words and words

Words, words and words (Photo credit: Arslan)

   I never knew one word in the English language that can be a noun, verb, adjective, adverb, preposition.
  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   scretary 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 almost1/4 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 ? Get Up!
 Did that one crack you UP? 🙂

    If it was up to me I would write up another list but I think I’ll just say that you did a great job making up the original list and that’s enough of that…LOL 🙂
