How to use "Shrug" in context?

A shrug is a fairly simple movement. When you shrug your shoulders, you move your arm and shoulder muscles up and down, but not all the way in or all the way out. This moves the scapula (shoulder blade) and creates a "p shrug" or "trench" looking effect.

There are a few different ways to do a shrug. You can do them with your hands in front of you, or behind your back. You can lift your shirt up, or just your shoulders. The key is to do it energetically, and not just for show.
