Timing is everything

The Talking Centipede


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, 

(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?”

But again, 

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?” 

… YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS … 


This time, 

a little voice 

came out of the box, 

“I heard you the first time!
I’m putting on my shoes!”
