Wordplay, A Saturday Centus

I've been ditching class for too long. It's back-to-school time, so I re-entered Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus.  She challenged us to write a sentence without the two most common letters of the English language, "e" or "t".

Jenny Matlock

Here's my humble offering: My mojo ran away.

Jenny's assignment also prompted this little rhyme:


There's "hop" in "hope" without the "e"

And "can" in "can't" minus the (apostrophe) "t"

Wordplay alone serves to attest:

Sometimes we manage more with less.

Be well, enjoy the weekend, and keep hopping.


  1. I wouldn't say it was a poor attempt at all Robyn, I definitely couldn't pull off the challenge and I like to think that I have a broad vocabulary, I guess I don't have one just as good as yours!

  2. describes most of my weekends - short and direct -- just how a sentence should be.

    have a great day.

  3. "Hop" is more than "hope"? Yes, I think you're right. Hopping can get you across the room, which is more than hope can do!

  4. YAY Robyn is back and clever as ever...well done !!!

  5. Brilliant! If I had to do this assignment I would have sat there for hours staring at the screen.
    Blessings, Joanne

  6. Hopefully it comes back, did you put up wanted posters? haha

  7. I don't think your mojo ran very far! Loved the poem!!

  8. Great job with the challenge, and the poem was an added bonus! You deserve a gold star! Julie

  9. YW, you're always so supportive. Thank you.

    Lissa, I think "short and direct" sums me up too. Thanks for the visit and comment.

    MsA, thanks so much. It means
    a lot.

    GB, exactly. Hopping is active, while hoping is passive.

    Nonna, good to see you, friend. I appreciate your kind words and have missed the Centus.

    Joanne, aw, thanks so much. (Psst, I did sit for hours before posting this.)

    Pat, maybe I'll post on craigslist missed connections.

    Susan and Stephen, I'm really glad you liked it. Thank you for stopping by.

    Anita, great to see you again. Your kind words mean a lot. That mojo's a finicky thing.

    Julie, thank you. I haven't earned a gold star in -well- I'm not sure I ever have. I'll wear it with pride.


  10. You do good. I am not great with prompts. You are very good!

  11. Loved the wordplay.

  12. You did a whole lot better than I could have done, that's for sure! :)

  13. I think you did great!! It would be difficult.

  14. I like that your sentence expressed what I think most of us felt when we saw that prompt!

  15. You know, I think my mojo ran away, too. I can't think. LOL

  16. so wonderful to read!
    Mine is here
    Have you an AWESOME WEEK!

  17. I could never do this, dearie! Yours is dam good! Love the double rhyme of "apostrophe T".
    Have a great weekend, my friend!!

  18. That was pretty cute! You got what it takes...

  19. I can hardly comment cuz I'm grinning so hard to see it's you!

    It's you!

    It's you!

    I'm so glad to see you!

    And I think you've gotten more brilliant in the interim.

    Absolutely fabulous!

    You rock!
