    There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word,

    and that 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 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 1/4th 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 and on, but I'll wrap it UP,
    for now my time is UP, so.............

    Time to shut UP.....!

    I bet you had to drink a lot of coffee after that--and everyone knows that if you drink lots of coffee, U P for the rest of the day.

    I'm wound up, but I'm not going anywhere. I'm fed up, but I'm still hungry. If I get my dander up I may wind up, up to my eyes in trouble, and not be up to getting the courage up to handle the situation..........oh well, enough oneUPsmanship, I'll drink up, settle up, and get up the road before time's up. :confused: :D :D

    I was shopping for a new sleeping bag but the prices were unbelievably high. When I asked the salesperson why, he said is was because down is up.
