The Human Pet
“I’m looking to buy a pet.” Dominic said to the pet storeowner.
“Of course, sir. Do you know what you’d like? We have a large variety of cats, dogs, reptiles, birds, and we even got a new shipment of humans just yesterday.”
“I was thinking I’d like a human. I have a friend with one and he says they’re intriguingly intelligent.”
“Well yes sir, while they are smarter than dogs or cats, they shouldn’t be overestimated. They’re still just pets.”
