I shopped at WalMart tonight
I bought a can of dog food for 92cents because I knew it would be faster to get it there than at the grocery store.

It felt weird to be in there.

Forgive me?

1. Provided it makes your dog into the
Rabid Hound Of Or-nu-lu Who devours the Wal-mart executives.

2. Say 4 our Fathers, 3 Hail Mary's and an Act of Contrition...
and you will be forgiven.

3. Yes, but now you must
eat the dog food and give your dog your dinner.

5. I would but he doesn't care for Chinese takeout
The dog food is gross but I can't get the stuff I buy from the vet till tomorrow so I had to get him something.

I have to say I was mightily tempted to buy other things as the prices were SO LOW, but I resisted temptation.

4. I was there last weekend
I needed something that I had been to a couple other stores looking for and they didn't have it. So I reluctantly went to WM.

6. I have shopped at Walmart at 1 in the morning
when I really needed aspirin. No place else was open. But it sure wasn't crowded.

10. I refuse to go into
WalMart for any reason. I buy all my cat food
at the dollar store.

You were in the midst of an emergency.......you had no choice......

Go, and sin no more!

12. Actually, if we all bought a single 99 cent can of dog food
once a day for a month, we could possibly put a dent in their profits.

80,000 DUers--think of the overhead just for 80,000 cans of dog food--and the happy animal shelters that would get the spoils from us dogless DUers...

Nothing else, just a single can of dog food.
