The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees
about an urgent problem with one of the main computers.

He dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with
a child's whispered, "Hello?"

Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a
youngster the boss asked, "Is your Daddy home?"
"Yes", whispered the small voice.

"May I talk with him?" the man asked.
To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, "No."

Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mommy
there?" "Yes", came the answer.
"May I talk with her?"
Again the small voice whispered, "No."

Knowing that it was not likely that a young child would be left
home alone, the boss decided he would just leave a message with
the person who should be there watching over the child.

"Is there any one there besides you?" the boss asked the child.
"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?" asked the boss.
"Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman", came the whispered

Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like
a helicopter through the ear piece on the phone the boss asked,
"What is that noise?"

"A hello-copper" answered the whispering voice.

"What is going on there?" asked the boss, now alarmed.
In an awed whispering voice the child answered, "The search team
just landed the hello-copper." Alarmed, concerned, and more
than just a little frustrated the boss asked,
"What are they searching for?"

Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled

Oh dear! It's funny because something very similar happened in our home 4 years ago. One of the boys was angry with his brothers and decided to 'disappear' unbeknownst to everyone of course ... my wife and I became frantic after we couldn't find him despite valiant efforts, screaming his name and running around the house and yard in a panicky search. He appeared from under the bed in the guest room, which is never used, only after police had been summoned ... I was relieved and furious simultaneously, to put it mildly, and let my wife and the police officers handle the situation!

Ravi, thank goodness it all ended well and now you will have something to remember, hopefully in a good way, for many years to come.
