Personal Ad: A Saturday Centus

Hi there! It's good to be back after a brief hiatus. I missed you all and hope life's been treating you well. 

I'm jumping back in with the Centus challenge. The Saturday Centus is termed a "centus" for a reason (or so I thought); we compose a piece within 100 words based on a given prompt. Ms. Jenny, an extraordinary woman and writer, is in a mood and thus limited us to 25 words this week. So don't expect too much. But please check out the other offerings. There are much more sane writers than me  whose blogs are well worth visiting.  The prompt is bolded below, as usual.   

Enjoy!  xo Robyn

I'm not getting any younger and I've got a huge one*.

It keeps growing bigger.

So come (no pun intended, seriously) and get it ladies!

* = wallet

-Hugh Hefner


  1. Welcome back, Robyn! We missed ya! Hope you had a great time! (too many exclamation points? Damn! Ooops, there's another one! And yet another one! Crap!)
    Going to bed now!

  2. Not for all the freakin' money in the world! besides, he only likes girls that have jiggly parts not flappy parts that sound like applause. I'm sooooo out of the running.
    Blessings, Joanne

  3. A HUGE one?? Yeah, right!! RR, we have missed you! Glad to see you back among the best bloggers on earth!

    I am leaving on the 21st for a much needed vacation with my hubby and my dogs. I priced an Ipad today, and it freaked me out, so no blogging while I am gone!

  4. That's a very honest Hef you've created, Robyn. Would any woman think the word "come" could possibly be a pun from Hef?

  5. You really pack a wallop in 25 words! Welcome back and I can't wait to hear about your camp adventures! Julie

  6. For a moment I could imagine Jenny banning you but a great twist at the end!

  7. Robyn's back!
    And the ladies just continue to line up for that man. Creepy.

  8. Yay! She's back! I'm doing like Penwasser, with the exclamation points! OK?!
    What is up with the Hef?! Can't believe that boy still walks the earth!

  9. Wallet...hmmmm....sure! Robyn, I have to admit, I like your style...such a style should have suitors lined up at your front door...really, your not getting any younger...right? Peace and blessings

  10. welcome back. I made a cake for you but I can't remember where I left it.

  11. Welcome back! Thanks for you comment on my centus this week.

    This one almost make me blow coffee through my nose! I'll bet his wallet is the only thing big about him.


  12. That's a hilarious take on this week's Centus. Well done you. I'm still sniggering to myself!

  13. LOL :D Hilarious! The * to the twist got it right! Loved this!

  14. You are such a naughty girl Robyn.

    Very very naughty.


  15. Sue, only through my writing and not in real life. Drats!

    Thanks Al and Dawn!!! I missed you too.

    Joanne, great comment. The plastic gals he goes for are dumping him too. I love it.

    Judie, thanks. I'll miss you but I'm glad you're taking a much needed vacation.

    Thank you all for welcoming me back. It's great to be here!

    Be well.

  16. hahahaha. great, great, great..

    and ick at the same time. Hugh. yikes.

  17. I'm rolling on the floor with this one. This is the best yet. Old Hugh does have a big one doesn't he! Hahahahahah!
    Welcome back sweetie! We've missed you and your humor!~Ames

  18. LOL! Loved this. Thanks for a great laugh this evening. I needed that. laurie

  19. Yay, welcome back.

    Hecka funny post! Well done.

  20. welcome back!

    you've been missed!!

    you're such a naughty girl, robyn!
    betty xx

  21. Well I thought it was an Ad for rock...and keep getting larger^ (no pun intended)
    you write and the sane flock to does that say??

  22. Hi everyone: I agree, Hugh is such a creep. He keeps almost getting married to 20-something'ers but they bail out...I guess size (of a man's wallet, that is) doesn't account for everything.

    Thanks for enjoying my perversity.

  23. Dear Robyn,
    I have not kept up with Hugh Hefner's later adventures, but I can use my imagination. Thanks for the update.

    Delightful and truly funny take on the prompt! Great comment on the power and limitations of money! Also how famous people can sometimes think that they are exempt from the realities of life that the rest of us are bound by.

    Your text makes me think of how the famous Swedish film director, Ingmar Bergman, complained that the Swedish Radio sent church services over the airwaves. He said that it was boring and that almost nobody listens to it; only old ladies who soon will die. He would live to eat up those words.

    Time past; he got older. He finally died too, just as we all will sooner or later. But before he did, he expressed a wish and a hope to see his wife, Ingrid, on the other side. She had died before him.

    Anyway, I love your writing!

    Best wishes & hugs,

  24. brilliant. making us all thing a bit rude then giving us the real meaning haha love it

    My Centus

  25. Thanks Anna. It's always great to hear from you, sweet lady. I enjoyed the story about Ingmar.

    Tina, thank you. I do tend to stretch the innuendo thing. I'm surprised Jenny hasn't banned me from class.


  26. Oh hooray! It's you! You are always one of my favorites...but sssshhh...don't tell the other people that link.

    I've always wondered about that. I always figured that Hugh and Donald are ummm.... deficient in that area which is why they haul around so much arm and bed candy all the time!

    This was such a clever twist to the prompt.

    You are really so unique and cool.

    I admire your style, girl!

  27. I'm back. Hey, how does Ames know this? Hmmm....

  28. Hahaha. You crack me up friend!! :)

  29. A very good point, Jenny!

    BabySis, thanks. You're so good for reading all these posts. I'm honored.
