Patience is a Virtue
A gentleman was lonely and decided life would be more fun with a pet friend.
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 centipede that came in a little
white box. He took the box and pet back home and the centipede settled in.
That night the fellow decided to take his new pet to the bar to have a drink. He
bent over the box and asked the little furry creature, "Would you like to go to
Frank's with me and have a beer?"
There was no answer from his new pet. This worried him a bit, but he waited a
few minutes and asked him again, "How about going to the bar and having a drink
Again, there was no answer from his new friend and pet. So he waited a few
more minutes while assessing the situation. He decided to ask him one more time,
while putting his face up against the centipede's house, and shouting, "Hey,
in there! Would you like to go to Frank's place and have a drink with me?!!"
A little voice came out of the box, "I heard you the first time! I'm putting my
darn shoes on!"
