She caused a stir!

stir a coffee

When someone causes a stir, it means that they cause something bad or unpleasant to happen.

To stir means to mix by making circular motions with a spoon just like when you stir your coffee because you’ve added sugar.

Examples:

  • The sex scandal caused a stir in his political campaign.
  • Her resignation caused a stir in the company on Friday.
  • The speech caused a stir in the crowd.

LEM…xo
