‘Is your daddy home?’ ‘ Yes, he’s out in the garden ,’ whispered the small voice. ‘May I talk with him?’ The child whispered, ‘ No .’ ;
So the boss asked, ‘Well, is your Mommy there?’ ‘ Yes, she’s out in the garden too ‘& The boss asked; ‘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 police dog men. ‘ Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in the background, the boss asked, ‘What is that noise?’ ‘ It’s a helicopter ‘ answered the whispering voice.
‘What is going on there?’ demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive. ‘ The search team just landed a helicopter ‘ ‘A search team?’ said the boss. ‘What are they searching for?’
Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle…. ‘ ME ‘
