A funny word!

Did you ever think about the word UP?  I received this from a friend and just had to share.  It cracked me up!

Read up about a two Letter Word....if you are UP to it....

The word is 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 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.   We power UP appliances and when we
go to the beach we need a cover UP.

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.  Don't forget
the need for make UP.  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, 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? 

                                 P !
Did that one crack you UP?

Don't screw UP.  Laugh about this with your friends.

Now I'll shut UP!
