The 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 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 what sounded like a helicopter through the ear piece, 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 the 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.”

Our neighours severely autistic son managed to get out some years ago, and the police helicopter was out for him.

They found him on the local railway line where a train had just left the station, and fortunately managed to stop.

We were all out searching for him.

I joke with my stepchildren sometimes about them needing to call Childline if they misbehave (I promise I would never do anything to hurt them really).

Anyways my stepdaughter whose 10 always says that its ok cos she know the number is 118 247! Not sure she would get what shes looking for from that number.
Its now time to start living and to make some some wonderful memories!
