Fun Friday With a Little Help From My Friends
LAST TRIP TO COSTCO: (Thanks Angela)
Yesterday I was
at my local COSTCO buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my loyal pet,
Jake, the Wonder Dog and was in the check-out line when a woman behind me asked
if I had a dog. What did she think, I had an elephant?
So because I'm
retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have
a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again.
I added that I probably shouldn't,
because I ended up inthe hospital last
time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward
with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.
I told her
that it was essentially a Perfect Diet and that the way that it works is, to
load your pants pockets with Purina Nuggets and simply eat one or two every time
you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so itworks well and I was going to try it again. (I
have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled
with my story.)
Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care, because
the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off a curb to sniff a
poodle's bottom and a car hit me.
the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard.
Costco won't let me shop there anymore.
Better watch what you ask retired
people. They have all the time in the world to think of crazy things to say.
