The Playboy story

Headlines say Seth Rogan will be on the cover of Playboy magazine. He will be the eighth man to do this.

I’m excited about this headline, not because I like Seth Rogan, but because I have a Playboy magazine story.

When My Oldest Friend and I were about 11 we were on our town’s tree-lined, Main Street-type strip. We were in the corner drug store. It was an old-fashioned store, not like the corporate chains you see today.

The store’s side facing our cozy downtown was window from floor to ceiling. There was a magazine stand that ran along this.

At her suggestion we spread open Playboy magazines all along the display rack facing the window and ran out of the store.

Good times.

    I’ll be damned. You’re right.
    I asked my husband, who has no kind of memory at all, and he told me when he was in elementary school he and his friends came upon a fort built in the woods behind the school. It was bursting with Playboy magazines.
    He still remembers some of the spreads he saw in there.

    Please find every guy in the world and ask for Playboy stories. They will make great comments.

    i have a playGIRL story, and i thought that’s what this was going to be about –
    but no.
    the above sounds like something i would suggest, but i don’t remember doing it. of course.

    i remember checking out those centerfolds as we propped them open.
