Another Thought...

A man goes into a pet shop and tells the owner that he wants to buy a
pet that can do everything. The owner says, “How about a dog?” The man
replies, “Come on, a dog can’t do everything.”

The owner says “How about a cat?” The man replies, “No way! A cat
certainly can’t do everything. I want a pet that can do everything!”

The owner thinks for a minute. Then says, “I’ve got it! A centipede!”
The man says, “Centipede? I can’t imagine a centipede doing everything
but, ok … I’ll try a centipede.”

He gets the centipede home and says to the centipede, “Clean the
kitchen.” Thirty minutes later, he walks into the kitchen and it’s
immaculate. All the dishes and silverware have been washed, dried, and
put away. The countertops cleaned. The appliances sparkling. The floor
waxed. He’s absolutely amazed.

He says to the centipede, “Go clean the living room.” Twenty minutes
later, he walks into the living room. The carpet has been vacuumed. The
furniture cleaned and dusted. The pillows on the sofa plumped. The
plants are watered. The man thinks to himself, “This is the most
amazing thing I’ve ever seen. This is a pet that can really do
everything.”

He says to the centipede, “Run down to the corner and get me a
newspaper.” The centipede walks out the door. Ten minutes later, no
centipede. Twenty minutes later, no centipede. Thirty minutes later, no
centipede.

The man is wondering what’s going on. The centipede should have been
back by now. Forty-five minutes later, still no centipede. The man
can’t imagine what could have happened. Did the centipede run away? Did
it get run over by a car? Where was the centipede?

He goes to the front door, opens it, and there’s the centipede sitting right outside the door. The man says,

“Hey! I sent you 45 minutes ago to run down to the corner and just get me a newspaper. What’s the story?”

The centipede says, “I’m goin’! I’m goin’! I’m puttin’ on my shoes!”
