A Retiree’s Last Trip To The Supermarket

Yesterday I was at my local Kroger 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 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.

  1. Reblogged this on Loopyloo's and commented:
    Wonderful!!

  2. “ROLLING OVER LAUGHING!!!” sorry, can’t get myself to even add the “f” word…not even in abbreviated form…

    yeah, i know…sometimes i “slip” when making comments, here & there, and my only excuse is “…that I’m still human…”

    …i “attempt” to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, in everything i DO,,,

    • bobby, at least we try…right?

      • “Exactly!” more than we can say for some…like “Obozo!”

        Supposedly…”educated?”…he has NO EXCUSE! AND, then again, perhaps he is just a “real” puppet!

        “BRAIN-WASHED”…totally controlled by “others?”

        forgive me for these next comments…as they are ONLY my own observations, BUT…

        when I first “seen” him on TV…my first thoughts were,

        “…OMG! He looks like some form of cyborg!” His “facial” responses, the way he “moves” as he looks around the room while making a speech…ALL “mechanical” in nature…NOT “human-like”…not “natural” As I said, please forgive me, but…this IS the way in which I “view” him! AND then, you “see” the kind of “decisions” and “policies” he makes while at the same time, saying something contrary to what he does!

        NEVER ONCE showing ANY KIND OF EMOTION! Then “as if” on cue…he “shed-a-tear” the other day on camera when talking about the the slain children.

        Are “WE, the People…” certain that this school wasn’t targeted by “his” administration on purpose? NO! Ask yourself this question, “Why does the media refer to the people on the scene as, FIRST RESPONDERS?”
        …rather than simply saying the “police” responded?

        OBVIOUSLY, some of the “first responders” were Federal Agents or of the Federal Government! If so, then “WE, the People…” MUST ask the question, “HOW did the Federal Agents (or “whoever” besides the “police” & “fire department”) get there as “first responders” WITH the police & fire department???”

        They had to have been waiting and prepared in “advance” to be a “first responder!”

        “…you follow my drift!…right?”
