How to use socket in a sentence?

  1. Kaylee Muthart:

    So I pushed my thumb, pointer, and middle finger into each eye. I gripped each eyeball, twisted, and pulled until each eye popped out of the socket — it felt like a massive struggle, the hardest thing I ever had to do, because I could no longer see, I don't know if there was blood. But I know the drugs numbed the pain. I'm pretty sure I would have tried to claw right into my brain if a pastor hadn't heard me screaming, ‘I want to see the light!’ — which I don't recall saying — and restrained me.

  2. Caroline Wozniacki:

    I had my ankle injury and broke two ligaments, my foot kind of went out of its socket. I was trying to slide on a clay court at full speed, and it just got stuck. I was actually wearing a brace, and the next day the doctor told me if I hadn’t been, my bone would probably have been sticking out of my foot. It was excruciating.

  3. Robert Spotswood:

    The key difference for me has been the ability to wear this all day long, without any real sensitivity whatsoever on the end of my leg. It’s allowed me to participate in sports that I love for longer periods of time, previously I was playing one set of tennis and I would be all the way into my socket to the point where I was having a lot of sensitivity on the end of my bone.

  4. Chad Hammel:

    Once we got him on the kayak we could really see what happened, and his whole clavicle's ripped open ; you could see the ball and socket joint and everything.

  5. Casey Holliday:

    Dinosaurs are like modern-day birds, crocodiles and lizards in that they inherited particular joints in their skulls from fish ball and socket joints, much like peoples hip joints that seem to lend themselves, but not always, to movement like in snakes, when you put a lot of force on things, theresa tradeoff between movement and stability. Birds and lizards have more movement but less stability.
