I was feeling a bit lonely so I decided life would be more fun if
I had a pet. So, I went to the pet shop and told the owner that I wanted
To buy an unusual pet.
After some discussion, I finally bought a Centipede which came in
A little white box to use for his house. I took the box back home, found
A good location for it, and decided I would start off by taking my new
Pet to the pub to have a drink.
So, I asked the centipede in the box, "Would you like to go down
The Queen's Head Pub with me and have a beer?" . But there was no
Answer. This bothered me a bit, but I waited a few minutes and then asked him
Again, "How about going to the pub for a drink?". But again, there was
No answer from my new friend and pet. So, I waited a few minutes more,
Thinking about the situation.
I decided to ask him one more time; this time putting my face up
Against the centipede's house and shouting, "Hey, in there! Would you like
To go to The Queen's Head Pub and have a drink with me?"
A little voice came out of the box:
"I heard you the first time! I'm putting my bloody shoes on!"
