A request to fellow bloggers

I think this very well deserves to be a post!!

I have been intimated in the comments either for having been given an award or tagged. Some samples are below.

Shalini’s Award ->

Pria’s Tag ->

I am sure neither me nor the individuals can easily track the post and its url now. Not just to divert the responsbility but a sincere request. As i could not immediately take it up by then, now i feel something is lacking! 😦

I would definitely thank you for having considered me :P, but it would indeed be of much help if the individuals just take a little effort to just paste the corresponding URL as well :).

Hope you agree with me. If you are game, kindly follow the same henceforth! 🙂

Kids too much

A boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had phoned in sick one day.                                                               
Having an urgent problem with one of the main computers, he dialled the employee’s home phone number and was greeted with a child’s whisper.       
 “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 Mummy there?”                                                                                                                                          
 “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 Mummy and Daddy 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 hello-copper” 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 hello-copper.”                                                                                                                                         
 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.” 😛
