How to use spunky in a sentence?

  1. Nina Daniele:

    The Femlin’s this spontaneous, spunky, smart, mischievous, tiny little woman who sticks The Femlin in between places, the Femlin’s the life of the party … The Femlin has all of these wonderful characteristics, but The Femlin’s also imperious to society’s beliefs and restrictions. They do n’t apply to The Femlin … Society’s restrictions do n’t apply to any of us at all. We need to show society that women as a whole, we are imperious to those restrictions. That’s what The Femlin stands for. Even though I ’m on the cover, it’s me, but I ’m The Femlin. I am portraying what The Femlin stands for … It’s a homage to The Femlin and how Hugh Hefner in 2017 viewed women in society.

  2. Bobbi Gordon:

    She was young and spunky, so that was our biggest worry, that she wouldn't know what was too rough.
