Flurry, Fuss, Conundrum, Kerfuffle!

Mosaic KTalking with colleagues about the intricacies of administrative organization last week, I found myself using the word, “kerfuffle”, appropriately in a sentence.  One colleague asked me to define and spell said term and I was at odds to do so in a succinct manner. Fortunately another colleague came to my rescue and we all plunged into the etymology of this relatively young word of Caledonian origin on webster.com.  Now, while it should be used sparingly, can you use kerfuffle in a sentence?
