Mid September!!Already half the month is through..This year seems to have gone by real fast..but still seemed long enough..
I’m sure you will enjoy the following post..I came across this and couldn’t resist sharing it..😃
This two-letter word in English 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 (if there is a tie, it is a toss *UP*) 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 blocked *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 ( *UP* to) 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 and on, but I’ll wrap it *UP*, for now…… my time is *UP*!
So, did this whole thing, crack you *UP*?
