Another jewel from a friend via email.  This is why I say kids, kids, kids!!!!  I can actually see my four year old doing this some day.  EGADS!!!!  

A boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had not phoned in sick one day.  Having an urgent problem he dialed up his employee at home. 

“Hello,” whispered a child’s voice. 

“Hello is your mommy home?” the boss asked. 

“Yes,” whispered the small voice. 

“May I talk with her?” 

“No.”  The small voice whispered. 

Surprised the boss asked if he could speak with the child’s daddy. 

“No.”  The small voice whispered. 

“Is there anybody else there?”  The boss inquired, wanting to speak with an adult. 

“Yes,” whispered the child, “a policeman.” 

The boss became concerned and wondered why a police officer would be there.  “May I speak to the policeman?” 

“No, he’s busy,” whispered the small voice. 

“Busy doing what?” 

“Talking to mommy and daddy and the fireman,” came the whispered answer. 

The boss was now worried and 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 child. 

The boss was now truly apprehensive and demanded to know what was going on. 

“The search team just landed a helicopter out front,” whispered the child. 

The boss was at his wits end!  “WHAT ARE THEY SEARCHING FOR?”  

Still whispering the young voice replied with a muffled giggle… me.”
