As a detective trying to solve the mystery of the crossword clue ‘Commotion‘, I sifted through a myriad of possible solutions. I first tried out the word ‘riot‘ which seemed like a possible fit, but it didn’t match with the intersecting words. Then, another possibility that came to my mind was ‘uproar‘, however, it was too long of a word. I knew I had to find a word that was short enough to fit neatly into the crossword grid. As I pondered on this puzzle, I realized that a “STIR” is a short yet fitting word that perfectly describes a commotion. From a simple disturbance or ruckus to a chaotic turmoil, a commotion is synonymous to a stir. It all made perfect sense, and the intersecting words clicked into place. Solving this crossword puzzle gave me a rush of excitement – a true font of intellectual stimulation!
