Hubbub

Powerball

Hubbub (noun)– a loud mixture of sound or voices; a situation in which there is much noise, confusion, excitement, and activity

I first heard of this word in the context that on the day after a holiday party, people at work were subdued and hungover; there wasn’t a lot of hubbub in the office like the day before. With the Powerball jackpot estimated between at $1.5 billion, the hubbub at school has been around pooling money for a shot at the prize. We will find out tonight if the hubbub continues on tomorrow or dies like productivity after an office holiday party.
