I’m at Pets at Home buying a bag of dog food for my dog. While in the check-out queue, a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. Why else would I be buying dog food, RIGHT???

So on impulse I told her that no, I didn’t have a dog, I was starting the Dog food Diet again, and 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 intensive care 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 all you do is load your pockets with food 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 queue 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 a poodle’s butt and a car hit me. I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard.

Now come on! Did you really think I said that?

I found it on Silversurfers Timeline, on Facebook. It was just too funny not to share!

    LOL Good one! Actually, I have some friends who did use a “dog food diet”. These two guys decided that each week they would meet at the one man’s chiropractic office and weigh themselves. If they hadn’t met their weight loss/ maintenance goal for the week, then they had to eat a can of dog food. Gross right? Evidently it was gross enough that they both stayed on their diets and never had to eat the dog food. 🙂

    WWW – It looks like Dianne saw it too, it was a first for me and I thought it funny… must send it to my sister, since the ladies above are hers!

    Dianne – Dianne, that would be going a little far for me!

    Delores – Jack was a demon for teasing me in the pet food aisle. He would pick up a large tin of dog food and ask me in a loud voice to buy it for his sandwiches, telling the world it was very tasty! One day I called his bluff and added it to my basket saying nothing!

    Celia – 😀

    Ramana – Good.
