Examples of dress-up in a Sentence

  1. David Spade:

    It’s funny because every girl I was with or anyone around that knew they would see Katie would dress differently. They would bring their A-game. It was very sweet. They would be like, ‘Is Katie coming? Are Andy and Katie going to be there?’ And if [she was], it was a whole new wardrobe, katie was very sweet. She knew that they were doing that, and then she would … say some compliment. And when I’d say, ‘You don’t dress up for me,’ they’d go, ‘Yeah, that’s her and you’re you.’.

  4. Ryan Pack:

    God: He can make you say things, he can make you go places, (For example) the secretary of state, he can make you do things like write a book or dress up as Mario for Halloween, he can hit Jesus statues with lightening, he can make you type words over the internet, he can make you pick your nose without you even knowing he's making you do it, he has control over all your behaviors without you even knowing it. So I ask myself if God has so much power, if God is so intelligent, if he is so connected to us, than why is there so much evil in the world and why doesn't he stop it? The only thing I can think of is that he is pure evil and doesn't want to stop it.
