Loggin' Out

Word of the Month

 

by Dennis Chang

 Kerfuffle   

(n) Commotion, disorder, agitation

 

(v) To put into disorder

 
 

Kerfuffle is the word of the month because this month is May; with May comes a time of anticipation. Students are anticipating the end of the school year and the beginning of summer, and Seniors in particular are anticipating the end of high school and a new beginning in college. Things are getting crazy with prom and the ending sports season and Springfest, and some students are also busy turning in extra credit or late work to end the school year on a good note. Overall, May is one hectic month, and “kerfuffle” describes it perfectly.

 

Use in a Sentence!

    William Tien woke up one morning and his house was a terrible kerfuffle.
