PSA-170914-UP

images-28.jpeg

I don’t know who wrote this, but it is genius. I have used the word UP in all the ways the author has shown in his examples. How about you?

 A reminder that one word in the English language that can be a noun, verb, adjective, adverb and preposition. 

UP 

 
  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 UPfor 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 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,  the earth soaks it UP.  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 and 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. 
 
Now I’ll shut  UP!

The Dangers of Allah

Confused about Islam, Muslims, Taqiyya, Kitman, The Islamic State, and Sharia? I've spent 14 years studying these confused beings.  They are not at all what they want us to believe, especially those who are ruled by al Qaeda , ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood as well as those who commit overt and covert Jihad while practicing Sharia tortures upon women

“ The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility. ” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
