A Retiree's Last Trip To Kroger's..
« on: March 05, 2014, 03:07:51 PM »
Yesterday I was at my local Kroger’s grocery
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 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
pants 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.

 (Kroger’s 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. :beer:
