How to use rubber in a sentence?

  1. Janelle Eli:

    When we spotted flimsy rafts and boats with our searchlight in the pitch dark, my heart always skipped a beat, she said. We could see through binoculars that rubber rafts were bowing under the weight of so many people. Hundreds of eyes looking back at us — stunned and panicked, but hopeful they’d be rescued. [D]rowning isn’t the only cause of death.

  2. Ronny Gross:

    After you wear them a few times, the red comes off and they put this rubber thing on it and it just stays better, i do it with every Louboutin.

  3. House Minority Leader Pelosi:

    It is the most exhilarating thrill to be a leader in a party that has that kind of diversity of opinion, it’s our strength.We’re not a rubber stamp.… It isn’t about some of the things that you talked about interparty.It’s a dynamic, but it certainly can work to our advantage.So I don’t see it as an obstacle, no.

  4. Jen Psaki:

    It doesn't mean we're giving rubber stamp approval to their other actions.

  5. Jessie Holeva:

    Watches are the number one symbol of luxury, so for Apple to create a watch that fits both tech and luxury is brilliant, it is nice to see leather and metal wrist band options, which makes the watch less sporty and more glam.I love that there are so many different customizable metal options, and I especially fell for the rose gold. The different types of bands are great for those who prefer a more sleek style watch to those who want a more classic feel. Although I don't go for the sporty styles, it is similar to brands like Toy that make watches poolside-ready with a rubber band.
