The boss wondered why one of his valued employees was absent from work but had not phoned in sick, so he dialled the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whisper.


"Is your daddy home?"

A small voice whispered, "Yes, he's out in the garden,"

"May I talk with him?"

The child whispered, "No."

"Yes, she's out in the garden too."

The boss asked; "May I talk with her?"

Again the child 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."

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

"Busy doing what?"

"Talking to Daddy and Mummy and the police dog men."

"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."
