At musical parties in the Princess Mona's rooms ... it often fell to my friend Roslin in some way or another to compete with my neurotic Princess of Empire Thor, and there was, as I have said, a keen rivalry, though only such as commonly exists between wise perons in such circumstances ... at that moment, close to the verandah the plum-tree were in bloom, and the waving of the dancers' sleeves shook and the delicate flowers got all huffy and stormed away, which cast a shower of perfume as they fell.

A person can also be 'in a huff' or 'go off in a huff' . . . .or even 'storm off in a huff' if things get really bad :)

In poetry:

The phantom said, "You'll have all this,
You'll know no kind of huffiness,
Your life will be one chubby bliss,
One long unruffled puffiness!"

JUSTIN Excellence wins the weirdest use of the 'word of the day' again!

If someone goes off in a huff, do they ride a huffy bike?
