    This was making the rounds at work today:


    A 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 earpiece on the phone, 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."

    I hate to break it to them, but.......
