The Pet Rock

If you tell it to sit, it will sit. A Pet Rock can sit quite well! The Pet Rock came in a box. The box had holes, like a box for a live pet. It also had tips on how to care for a Pet Rock. You will not need to feed a Pet Rock. You will not need to take it on runs. In fact, you will not need to do much to care for a Pet Rock! A fad has to fade. This fad lasted less than a year. But it made Dahl quite a rich man! ™ © Advanced Assessment Systems/LinkIt! Passage provided under license from Use and duplication is restricted to licensees only.
