Evening, fellas! How is the long weekend going? Mine is a little…flat but it’s awesome nonetheless.
Taking time to relax, hanging out with old friends, or simply sleeping all day long sound like good ideas to spend the holidays.
But of course, I will not abandon my sweet adorable fellas. There will be session today as usual and the session is #WOTD: Kerfuffle!
Kerfuffle [ker-fuhf-uh l] is a noun. Yes, Kerfuffle sounds funny. Kerfuffle sounds like a combination of fluffy and bubble. #WOTD
But the meaning is rather serious. Kerfuffle means disturbance or commotion caused by conflicting views. #WOTD
Imagine, you see two people involved in heated argument and then you said “Ugh, I better get going before I get into this kerfuffle.” #WOTD
Another example: “I had a kerfuffle with my girlfriend this morning. She is still mad.” #WOTD
Kerfuffle probably comes from Scots curfuffle/carfuffle which shares the same meaning with kerfuffle. #WOTD
The first known use of this word was relatively new, 1946. #WOTD
Kerfuffle synonyms are brouhaha, hubbub, mess, ruckus, disturbance, etc. yes, brouhaha is also a word. #WOTD
