A boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had not phoned in

sick one day. Having an urgent problem with one of the main computers, he

dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's

"Hello ? "

"Is your daddy home?" he asked.

" Yes ," whispered the small voice.

May I talk with him?"

The child whispered, " No ."

Surprised and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked,

"Is your Mommy there?" " Yes ."

"May I talk with her?" Again the small voice whispered, " No .."

Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss
asked, "Is anybody else there?"

" Yes ," whispered the child, "a policeman ".

Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss
asked, "May I speak with the policeman?"

" No, he's busy ", whispered the child.

"Busy doing what?"

" Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman ," came the whispered

Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in the background
through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked,
"What is that noise?"

A helicopter " answered the whispering voice.

"What is going on there?" demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive.

Again, whispering, the child answered, " The search team just landed a
helicopter .."

Alarmed, concerned and a little frustrated the boss asked,
"What are they searching for?"

Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle... " ME."

LOL, how very true. I have an ambitious 19 month old and I can't wait to see what the future holds out for me. He has already ran away from me in the library, walmart, and the backyard.

Good one, Budski. Hit a little close to home as I've experienced a similar scare with my youngest. I issued an Adam alert at the Barnes and Noble bookstore when my son wandered off. Went next door to the Toys R Us store and issued one there in case he decided he liked toys better than books. Took a half hour to find him curled up in the kids section of books studiously engrossed in some dinosaur book. Since I was perilously close to hysterical and physically blocking the door to keep anyone from leaving, all the employees (and quite a few customers) were relieved to see us go. I can laugh now but it was NOT funny at the time. Thanks for sharing.

When I was a kid of 2, my parents had the whole block out looking for me, police, the lot.

I'd got up early, found half a bottle of beer, and drank it behind the sofa, then fell asleep.
They couldn't find me - until I started snoring.
