    Why Parents Drink

    Why Parents Drink



    The boss wondered why one of his most valued employees was absent but had not phoned in sick. So he dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whisper. 'Hello ?'

    'Is your daddy home?''Yes, he's out in the garden,' whispered the small voice.'

    May I talk with him?' The child whispered, 'No.' ; So the boss asked, 'Well, is your Mommy there?' 'Yes, she's out in the garden too'& The boss asked; '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 police dog men. ' Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in the background, the boss asked, 'What is that noise?' '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' 'A search team?' said the boss.

    'What are they searching for?'






    Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle...'ME'

    That is hilarious. I had 3 boys and each one of them hid from me once each. LOL Thank goodness I never had to call the police but it sure scared me.

    Oh yes my youngest once did this to me. He left a note saying I was too mean and he was leaving forever. I had tried to make him clean his room you see. Anyway he then hid in the closet, I spent my last dime on gas for the car searching the neighborhood and finally called the police. As they were taking the information, he came out of the closet, rubbing his eyes and said...I fell asleep.... oh my it took all my will power not to start strangling him in front of the cop. As soon as the police left I gave him THE LOOK and threatened a life time of doom...and no he did not clean his room. Sigh...he is now the father of three boys, one still at home and none of them cleaned their room.

    Can't beat that story, LOL!!

    But, once my brother fell asleep UNDER his bed and woke 3 hours later when the whole neighborhood, the police, the radio station, and CB'ers were all involved in looking for him. My poor Mother. Daddy was *always* out of town when he was needed.

    My brother did that too, only fell asleep in a closet, everyone was looking for him. Finially woke up and come out to join everyone to see what was going on. He was about six I think. This definitely brought back good memories to giggle at. Look forward to your little funnies, Ditter. Thanks and God bless.

    Living on a working farm with lots of animals and danger all around, I was forever checking to see the kids (5) were. I remember searching for one of them every time they were out of sight. One day after looking in every barn and out building, just thinking the worst, I started back to the house, and there betweened the doors was the culpert, when I asked why she didn`t answer me, she said " I know where I am."

    This happened with my son's friend. It was late, dark, and lots of us were looking for him, including the police. He feel asleep under something while outside on the deck (mad at his mom). The police were NOT happy.

    That very thing happened to a family that lives 4-5 houses down. People were going door to door asking everyone to check their back yards. Kind of scary since there are a couple of ponds.
    Thankfully, he was found 'in a box!
    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean???? Me neither.

    It's not how fast you sew, it's how well you sew fast! Wait, I think that's supposed to be MOW!
