(My son told me he caught a praying mantis in his sister's room. He put it in his bug catcher. I am sooooooo not joking OR looking. )
So anyhoo - the other day a kid in our neigbourhood went missing. He is three. He had been gone for several hours before his mum noticed. I presume she thought he was sleeping. Anyways - instantly the entire block emerges from their homes and starts searching. I ran directly towards the train track a few blocks up. About an hour later - the police call them and tell them he has been picked up. They bring him on home and he is reunited with Mummy who is hysterical at this point.
My questions are several. How the hell does your kid go missing for 3 or 4 hours and you don't notice? How'd he get out? Don't you keep them locked in the attic like I do? (kidding)
Dunno. Suppose it could happen to anyone. But then again. NO. Maybe not.
They are a tad wee tiny bit strange this family. Their older kids are on the street all day until long after dark. Like 11:00 P.M. They are all of 7 and 9. They are reportedly "home schooled". They have these massive bible studies once a week but otherwise you never see the adults. Just the kids. It seems a bit eeeerie to me. Maybe the kid was trying to escape?
He could come live here... I do need someone, seeing as the dishwasher is broken... muah hahahaha.
P.S. Is this cheating? (yes. I think it is. Hmm. Ho hum.)
