LOL:) 'We seem to be Pretty mixed UP about---'UP' :) {SMILES!}

'As Salamu Alaikum'




One 2-letter word has a hundred completely different meanings.


So what is this stuff about English being easy? 

There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meaning 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 wake 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 of the proper uses of
UP, look UP the word in the dictionary.

In a desk size dictionary, the word up, takes UP almost 1/4th the page and definitions add UP to about thirty.

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

When it rains, it wets
UP the earth.

 When it doesn't rain for a while, things dry UP.

One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it

for now my time is UP!!


: )Smiles & 'Salaams"!

Son of Adam! You are nothing but a number of days,
whenever each day passes then part of you has Gone!
