My Visit to Costco

My Trip To Costco
Yesterday I was at my local COSTCO
buying a large bag of Purina dog chow
for my loyal pet, Molson, 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 ward with
tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVís 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 backside 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. 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.

F Y I:
Pointers are male dogs- Setters are female.
At least that's what the restaurant bathroom sign stated.
Safe travels...

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
