Our blog buddy, Mal, emailed me this and we thought it was cute enough to share it with you. I think it’s all pretty funny but what made me laugh was the reaction of the guy behind the lady! I wish I was right there with him! We need a good blog laugh at least once a week, right? Well, here it is!:
Yesterday I was at Costco buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my
loyal pet, Necco, the Wonder Dog, which weighs 191 lbs. I 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 in the 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 jacket pockets with Purina Nuggets and
simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is
nutritionally complete so it works 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 stopped to pee on a fire hydrant
and a car hit me.
I thought 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. Forward this (especially) to all your retired
friends…it will be their laugh for the day.
I HOPE YOU’RE LAUGHING!
have a great day,
