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,
(100-legged bug),which came in a little white box
to use for his house.
He took the box back home,found a good spot for the box,
and decided he would start off by taking his new pet
to church with him.
So he asked the centipede in the box,
"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 receive blessings?"
there was no answer from his new friend and pet.
So he waited a few minutes more,thinking about the situation.
The guy decided to invite the centipede one last time.
This time he put his face up against the centipede's house and shouted,
"Hey, in there!
Would you like to go to church with me,and learn about God?"
This time,a little voice came out of the box,
"I heard you the first time!
I'm putting my shoes on!"
