How to use wriggle in a sentence?

  1. John Updike:

    It seems to me the book has not just aesthetic values-- the charming little clothy box of the thing, the smell of the glue, even the print, which has its own beauty. But there's something about the sensation of ink on paper that is in some sense a thing, a phenomenon rather than an epiphenomenon. I can't break the association of electric trash with the computer screen. Words on the screen give the sense of being just another passing electronic wriggle.

  2. Prof.Salam Al Shereida:

  3. Adam Hartstone-Rose:
