The Winalot Diet.. Banned from Sainsbury's!

Hmmm retired people Wink

Banned from Sainsbury's

Didn't like shopping there anyway.

Yesterday I was at my local Sainsbury's store buyin a large bag of Winalot dog food for my loyal pet and was in the checkout queue 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 Winalot Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn’t, because I ended up in hospital last time, but I'd lost 2 stone before I woke up 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 that the way that it works is to load your pockets with Winalot 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 me if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me I told her no, I stepped off the kerb to sniff an Irish Setter's a##e and a car hit me.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard. I'm now banned from Sainsbury's.

Better watch what you ask retired people.

They have all the time in the world to think of daft things to say.Wine3

Wonderful Thumbs Up.

I'm just going to the supermarket buy a bag of Winalot so I can try it out. Fortunately I do have a dog so won't be stacking up big sacks of the stuff till someone plucks up courage to ask! Do you think there would be a different reaction in, say, Lidl which I recommend for the wine?

Just laughed all alone on my sofa with my laptop.

The Winalot diet sounds curiously plausible...bet you could get a book deal if you did an outline and sent it out. You're not Pippa Middleton by any chance? That would make it a cert.
