Sunny Sunday

After watching the Sunday morning political shows, one word stuck out. Yes, more than "Maverick". More than "Change".

The word that I had to actually look up was....kerfuffle!

kerfuffle - a disorderly outburst or tumult; commotion, hoo-ha, disruption, disturbance, a public disturbance.

Kerfuffle makes me giggle. Hoo-ha makes me giggle, too. I used that word several weeks ago in church.

My migraine has made my brain turn to mush. My migraine caused a kerfuffle in my brain.

Kerfuffle is an onomatopoeia - a word that sounds like what it is. It's a great word, and really descriptive. Whenever I hear the word, I imagine chairs being thrown across a room, and someone flying across a bar into the mirror behind it, that kind of stuff. :-)

I certainly hope that is not going on in your brain. Take care of yourself!

"Louis" likes the contrast of the peaceful images to the kerfuffle of the text! ;-)

Jo, Unfortunately, my head did feel like chairs being tossed across the room.

Louis, I was wondering if anyone would get that subtlety.
