A single guy decided life would be more fun if he had a pet.
So he went to the pet store and told the owner that he wanted to buy an unusual pet. After some discussion, he finally bought a talking centipede, which came in a little white box to use as his house. He took the box back home, and decided he would start off by taking his new pet to church with him. So he knocked on the box and asked the centipede, “Would you like to go to church with me today? We will have a good time.” But there was no answer from his new pet. This bothered him a bit, but he waited a few minutes and then asked again, “How about going to church with me and receiving blessings?” But again, there was no answer from his new friend and pet. So he waited a few minutes more, thinking about the situation. Finally, the guy decided to give the centipede one last chance. This time he put his face right up against his pet’s house and shouted, “Hey, in there! Would you like to go to Church with me and learn about God?” This time, a rather annoyed little voice came out of the box, “I heard you the first time! I’m putting my shoes on.”
