Examples of instantly in a Sentence

  1. Mark Hamillhas:

    I mean she was just so instantly ingratiating and funny and outspoken.

She was telling me stuff about her stepfather, about her mom, about [her father] Eddie Fisher — it was just harrowing in its detail. I kept thinking, ‘Should I know this?’ I mean, I wouldn’t have shared that with somebody that I had trusted for years and years and years. But she was the opposite. She just sucked you into her world.

Chances are that even a day like today will slip through your fingers and dissolve into oblivion, washed clean by the tides.
