Up, up, UP! or, fun with phrasal verbs

Here is an actual sentence from my conversation just now with my friend the massage therapist:

“Well, I don’t want to hold you UP
because it sounds like you’ve got somebody coming UP
but it sounds like we have a lot of catching UP
to do so let’s meet UP
sometime soon.”

It was entirely unintentional, I swear. After the third “up” I realized what was going on but somehow by then I was powerless to stop myself.
