I was at WalMart buying a bag of Purina dog chow for my dog , in the check-out line when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. Why else would I be buying dog chow, RIGHT ??? So on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Purina 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 inten.........sive 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 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 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. Better watch what you ask me and be prepared for my answer. I have all the time in the world to think of crazy things to say........................ now that you've read it I have to confess, I copied it from someone else.. share and make someone else smille)

You may have copied it from someone else, but have you tried it yet? I could definitely see having some fun with that one.

Haven't tried poodles. I prefer bigger dogs.

I work in a cube farm with 1/2 dozen other sys admins. We all dress pretty casual. Anytime one of us comes in a coat and tie, well, its 20 questions, like somehow they've never seen such stuff. Last week I was called as a witness to court and dressed accordingly. I knew I was going to get the quiz so I was ready. I told them that I had run over the neighbor's dog. The funeral was at a specific location in town at a methodist church, and the graveside services were at the local pet cemetery. No one questioned the authenticity of the story. I only received one question. "So, you ran over the neighbors dog and you're still welcome at the service?".
