Saturday Centus Time - Valentine Superhero

Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus is a humdinger of a challenge this week.

Rather than creating a story, because Monday is St. Valentine's Day, we are to create a greeting card.

Jenny searched the Internet to come up with our prompt.

Here it is: Using the photo of a pug dressed in a Wonder Woman costume (below) we are to come up with a Valentine card of no more than 50 words.

Impossible, you say? What would Wonder Woman do? Hmmm. I may not be Wonder Woman, but I am a writer, so I'll give it a shot. Here goes:

Outside: Happy Valentine's Day to my Superhero!

When I'm with you I turn into an animal.


Inside: What? You were expecting Halle Berry as Cat Woman?

  4. Hi All,
    Thanks. This one was fun.
    Note: I just changed the last line a bit.
    Now I need to check out some of the others. Can't wait to see their takes.

  13. Too cute, I think Hallmark would approve. BTW I used to call my mother's (German) parents, Omi and Opi! Very cool!

  20. LOL! I'll admit that would be a tough decision. A pug Wonder Woman or a Halle Berry Cat Woman. Hmm. I'll have to go with the pug. I stand less of a chance of being killed by my wife that way.

    Great job with your card!

  24. What a good sport you are!

    And what a great greeting card idea you came up with.

    I think it's fun to think totally and completely outside the box and you totally rocked that philosophy.

    Reading through all these on a dreary Arizona Saturday afternoon and grinning like a crazy woman.

    Thanks for playing along with the silliness!

    This was GREAT!

  25. This is really great! I love how you said what was on the cover and what was on the inside. It read like a perfect hallmark card!
