Wal-Mart and Purina

I was in Wal-Mart buying a large bag of Purina for my dogs and was in
a long line to check out. A woman behind me asked if I had a dog........  Duh!

I was feeling a bit crabby so on impulse, I told her no, I was starting.

The Purina Diet again, although I probably shouldn't because I'd ended
up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I
awakened in an intensive care unit with tubes coming out of most of my
orifices and IV's in both arms.  Her eyes about bugged out of her head.

I went on and on with the bogus diet story and she was totally buying

I told her that it was an easy, inexpensive diet and that the way it
works is to load your  pockets or purse with Purina nuggets and simply
eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The package said the food is
nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again.

I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now
enthralled with my story, particularly a tall guy behind her.

Horrified, she asked if something in the dog food had poisoned me and
was that why I ended up in the hospital.

I said no.....I'd been sitting in the street licking my butt when a car
hit me.

I thought the tall guy was going to have to be carried out the door.
