We have a "rumpus room" in our basement. I just like having it there. Makes me happy. Also enjoy: ziggurat = ancient temple
There could be a ruckus in the rumpus room.
Knackered. I don't use it, because I'm not British, but I do like to hear it.
Is there ever a hullabaloo in the rumpus room?
Or a kerfuffle?
So many excellent synonyms.
What about the other word mentioned in that entry? Ruction. I've never heard of it. When did that one go out of vogue? Well, I can see why - maybe."That guy's no good. Always having...uh...ructions. Everywhere. All the time. The smallest things get him started.""Wow. I heard about the fights, but that's too much. Uck. I mean, COME ON!"
What's the plural of "ruckus"? "Ruckui"? Of "rumpus"? "Rumpui"? "There were several ruckui in the rumpus room today"? Hmm...
As a child I was always being told to stop making a ruckus but it has gone"out of style " and one does not hear it much now. I do like it however.
