Twenty-ish, white female speaker:

"When she saw me talking to her girlfriend, she came over and tried to
_bully up_."

Not in the UD.

Google has it once, as the title of a note on bullying,


All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
