7. The amazing pet

A man went into a pet shop and told the owner he wanted to buy a pet. But, he didn't want an ordinary, garden variety pet! He wanted a pet that could do everything!

The shop owner suggested a faithful dog. The man replied, "Come on, a dog?" The owner said, "How about a cat?" The man replied, "No way! A cat certainly can't do everything. I want a pet that can do everything!"

The shop owner thought for a minute and said, "I've got it! A centipede1!" The man said, "A centipede? I can't imagine a centipede doing everything, but okay... I'll try a centipede."

So he got the centipede home and said to it ,"Clean the kitchen." 30 minutes later, he walked into the kitchen and amazingly found that the kitchen was cleaned. He then said to the centipede, "Go clean the living room." 20 minutes later, the living room was cleaned.

The man thought to himself, "This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. This really is a pet that can do everything!" Next he said to the centipede, "Run down to the corner and get me a newspaper."

The centipede walks out the door. The man waited for a long time, but there is no centipede. So he went to the front door and opened it, there was the centipede sitting right outside.

The man said, "Hey!!! I asked you down to the corner store 3 hours ago to get me a newspaper. What happened?!"

The centipede says, "I'm going! I'm going! I'm just putting on my shoes!"

Notes:

1. amazing 令人惊讶的

2. centipede 蜈蚣

神奇的宠物

一个男子走进一家宠物店,告诉店主他想买一只宠物。但他不想要一只普通的花园型宠物,他想要一只能做任何事情的宠物。

店主建议他买一只忠心耿耿的狗,男子说:“得了吧,狗?”店主说:“猫怎样?”男子回答:“不行,猫当然不能做一切事情,我想要能做任何事情的宠物。”

店主想了一会,说:“有了!一只蜈蚣!”男子说:“一只蜈蚣?我无法想象蜈蚣能做任何事情,不过好吧,我试试。”

于是他把蜈蚣带回家对蜈蚣说:“清理厨房。”30分钟后,他走进厨房惊喜地发现厨房被打扫得干干净净。于是他对蜈蚣说:“去打扫起居室。”20分钟后,起居室被打扫干净了。

这个男子想:“这是我见过的最神奇的事情,这真的是一只能做任何事情的宠物。”他接着对蜈蚣说:“去街拐角处帮我买份报纸回来。”蜈蚣走出门去了。

这个男子等了很久都不见蜈蚣的踪影。于是他走到前门,打开门,看到蜈蚣正坐在门口。

男子说:“嘿,我3个小时以前派你去拐角处的商店买份报纸,怎么还在这里?!”

蜈蚣说:“我正要去,我正要去,我正在穿鞋呢!”
