    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 i s 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 & 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 & the last thing you do at
    night?

    U
    P !



    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.

    Oh Ditter, how I've missed you the past couple of weeks. I'm going to look up all the jokes I've missed. Life got in the way and I messed UP on reading your jokes.

    Gotta love the English language. No wonder it is one of the hardest for others to learn. I think it's right UP there with Mandarin Chinese!
