  • A significant two letter word

    Subject: A significant two letter word


    There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other
    two-letter word, and that word is "UP."
    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 and we use it to brighten UP a room,
    polish UP the silver, we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen.
    We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car.
    At other times the little word has a 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 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 wets UP
    the earth.
    When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP
    One could go on & on, but I'll wrap it UP , for now my
    time is UP , so
    ....
    Time to shut UP .....!
    Regards Billy Boy :)
