The boss wondered why one of his most valued employees was absent but
had not phoned in sick one day. Needing to have an urgent problem with
one of the main computers resolved, he dialed the employee's home phone
number and was greeted with a child's whisper. '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 answer.

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...

I ran away when I was a kid. Didn't get far cause I couldn't cross the road.
I ran off when I was seven. I had spilled some model paint on the wall. I rook a walk around the neighborhood. When they show kids returning home on Leave It To Beaver, the parents are always overjoyed to see their kids. I was expecting that.

I got whipped.
I went walk about when I was a kid, I took a train into London aged 7. I wanted to see the Guards at Buckingham Palace and my Mum didn't have the time to take me, so I thought like Paddington Bear I could do the journey on my own. When I was found by a Police Man and taken home, my Mum went mad at me, then I got a big hug when I said 'well you told me the story and I thought I could be big, just like Paddy bear' needless to say my Mum was careful what she read to me after that.
