My New Little Friend
I was feeling a bit lonely and so 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 Tavern 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 Tavern and have a drink with me?"
A little voice came out of the
"I heard you the first time! I'm putting my f***ing shoes on."
