How to use cold shoulder in a sentence?

  1. Hillary Clinton:

    That is one of my favorite dresses, this is what's called a cold-shoulder dress ... Like everything I do, it turned out to be controversial. I'm hardly a fashion icon, I absolutely admit that.

  2. William H Gass:

    We have scarcely gotten home ... when our children's sneezes greet us, skinned knees bleed after waiting all day to do so. There is the bellyache and the burned-out basement bulb, the stalled car and the incontinent cat. The windows frost, the toilets sweat, the body of our spouse is one cold shoulder and the darkness of our bedroom is soon full of the fallen shadows of our failures.
