How to use lanky in a sentence?

  1. Merry Seabold:

    Intelligence always impressed Linda, but they couldn’t have been more different. She was a tall, lanky blondish brown hair gal who had a lot of friends and had worked a long time for one company. Paul was short… not very good-looking and didn’t really have a penny to his name, although he dressed well and spoke so eloquently. He had the ability to overwhelm you with his intelligence. She was really taken by that and overlooked everything else.

  2. Teresa Robinette:
