    Hobbes knows better than to ambush Calvin when Mom greets Calvin at the door.

    There is a two-letter word in English that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is ‘UP.’ It is listed in the dictionary as being used 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 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 a 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 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 wets 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?U PDon’t screw up. Send this on to everyone you look up in your address book. Now I’ll shut up.

    “Up” is one of those words with a myriad of meanings. For even more fun, look up the word “turn”.

    My issue is not “up” but “drugged”. Specifically my butt. It gets drugged all over the place. Thinking of putting leather padding on it.

    Of course his day is looking up. Any day Hobbes doesn’t flatten him at the door is a good day.

    Very classic. A Great Day For Up! At least Calvin is happy among returning home, compared to this similar strip from a few months later…

    Two separate functions of “up” here. Mostly “up” as a verb complement signifies completion or arrival at a goal. Sometimes, it means the opposite of “down”, though, as in “throw up” and “look up” (in the sense of experience an improvement; “look up” in the sense of “consult/search for something in a list or other source” is the other kind of “up”).

    Those are the rejected lyrics to Dylan’s Subterranean Homesick Blues.

    Oh, get sick, get well

    Hang around a ink well

    Hang bail, hard to tell

    If anything is goin’ to sell

    Try hard, get barred

    Get back, write braille

    Get jailed, jump bail

    Join the army, if you fail
