I have two dogs and I was buying a large bag of Purina at Costco and standing in line at the check out.
A woman behind me asked if I had a dog.
On impulse, I told her that 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 ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IV’s 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 & that 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 guy who was behind her.
Horrified, she asked if I’d ended up in the hospital in that condition because I had been poisoned. I told her no; I stepped off a curb to sniff a poodle’s butt and a car hit me.
I thought one guy was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard as he staggered out the door.
