If you’re like me, it sometimes takes a while to get up of your chair, straighten up, and make your way to a different room. Once you get there, you’ve forgotten why you went there in the first place. It’s so demoralizing. “Can anyone be slower and more forgetful than I?” you think.
Why yes, there is. Turtles. This is where the good folks at Slow Turtle Friends, STF(tm) come in. They will sell or rent you one of their highly taught turtles. Indeed, you should really watch their video on the turtles rigorous training program.

1) Instantly follow you.
2) Get to your destination after you.

Oh, the turtle will always make it back to you at your starting point. It just might take a while. And:
