Your Laugh for the Day

"Yesterday I was at my local COSTCO buying a large bag of Purina dog chow
for my loyal pet, Biscuit, the Wonder Dog and was in the checkout line when a
woman behind me asked if I had a dog. What did she think I had, an elephant? So,
since 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 wardwith 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 stepped off a curb to sniff an Irish Setter's
butt and a car hit us both.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.

Need more laughs? This is pretty cute. I read it last year and had some good chuckles.
