Word to Ponder!

The above picture is courtesy of the grahicsfairy I believe.
I just love the picture.....
So forgive me for saying, there are many things in life that are fairy simple...
Take the word up, absolute confusion.
I did a google search this am and 167 million sites to check out.
I don't think so.
UP...adverb..from a lower to a higher place, away from, or out of the ground,
in or on a higher positive level...
Why it concerns me today, I have no reason, just I am thinking how difficult the English language can be.
You have, hurry up, bottoms up, drink up, throw up, get up, chin up,bugger up, stand up, sit up,
f up, sorry!, grow up, even show up,....
oh I give up, and if I am crazy...
you can always gang up....
you know I think I will just shut up!!
How would you explain all this to a child?
New word down, ....
I am going to lay down.............maybe I need to rest!
Yeah I think so.
That is a fairy good idea.


  1. HI CIN - "hey"

    And there is the movie "UP", have you seen it yet? :-)

    Stay warm. I am in a weird place - my word for today has been "ick",

    Love you girl

  2. *rimshot*
    Words, words, words....
    You are right up there, Cinner!
    Get down, Cinner!

  3. Oh my gosh I didn't realize how many definitions there were for "up" and some of them are so funny......interesting day you have had sweetie......:-) Hugs

  4. English is a most difficult language.
    Trying to teach it so that it makes logical sense is paradoxical in itself.
    Love your 'up' beat blog!
