In my opinion, the local pet store is the poor man's zoo. Where else can you see exotic animals for free? It is also a place where spiritual topics abound. Brandon is a very friendly store employee who I approached while he was cleaning the ferret cage. While reading this encounter, please envision Brandon talking with a huge smile on his face the entire time.
Me: Excuse me, are ferrets good with kids?
Brandon: They can be.
Me: Which ones evolved first, ferrets or reptiles?
Brandon: That's a good question.
Me: Are you an evolutionist?
Brandon: I don't know. I haven't thought about it very much.
Me: Are you a Christian?
Brandon: I grew up Catholic.
Me: Do you attend a church?
Me: Do you believe in a heaven and a hell?
Brandon: I do.
Me: Where will you go when you die?
Brandon: I hope I will go to heaven, but I really don't know.
Brandon was starting to make me uncomfortable by his constant smile but I continued to share the gospel with him. Since he did not attend church, I invited him to mine. Although his smile can seem kind of creepy when witnessing, he would look great in the choir.
