Letter K - Kerfuffle

I just love saying this word KERFUFFLE.  Like most Americans it's not a word you hear everyday.

Kerfuffle is defined in Merriam Dictionary as a disturbance or a fuss.  It is chiefly a Brittish word for a state of confusion or disorder.

However it has become a favorite of mine because  of my favorite TV series Dr. Martin.  This word was used in one of the shows a few weeks ago and I enjoyed hearing it.

If you have not seen the series, it is about a surgeon who develops a fear of blood and gives up his hospital position.  He  moves to a small community to become a general practitioner.
Doc Martin is very crass, cannot show any emotion and upsets everyone in his small village.
Believe me Doctor Martin causes a kerfuffle everywhere he goes!!!

We use it here all the time but then we're from British background. I've been meaning to catch Doc Martin but always seem to miss him. I think I'll get the DVDs instead.

Ai am also a fan of Doc Martin's, but only saw the first series, which ended with himtrying to get married. It ended by the decision of him and his bride to cancel the wedding. I should love to see the rest.
