‘The search team just landed a helicopter’

The boss wondered why one of his most valued employees was absent but had not phoned in sick. So he dialed the employee’s home phone number and was greeted with a child’s whisper.

Is your daddy home?’ Small voice whispered, Yes, he’s out in the garden, 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 ‘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’
