Our Wonderful English Language

There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meaning than any other
two-letter word, and that is "UP." If you are not confused after reading this
you must really be messed "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, 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 real special meaning.
Police like to use this word also they say things Like write'em UP, Don't get all
worked UP, You're all messed UP, Im going to line UP, Put your hands UP, Shut UP,
Im gonna bust you UP, Time to go to lockUP, The homeland security alert has been
raised UP.
Police Dispatchers like to use the word also they say things like, Im UP to my ears in
paperwork,Turn your radio UP, The computer is UP.
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 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 of the proper uses of UP, look UP the word in the dictionary.
In a desk size dictionary, UP takes UP almost 1/4th the page and definitions add UP
to about thirty.
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 a while,
things dry UP.
One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now my time is UP , so I'll shut UP...
