I’ve been recording like mad for the past two weeks when it all came to a crashing halt yesterday morning when we got a phone call from Brandon’s school.
School: “Hello, is Brandon home sick today?”
School: “Oh, we have him marked as absent. We’ll do a washroom check and call you right back.”
…..TEN TERRIFYING MINUTES LATER!!!
School: “No…He’s not in the school.”
Every parent’s worse nightmare is to get this phone call from their child’s school. I don’t need to say what goes through your mind, I’m sure you know.
Long story short; he skipped out and was home by 1:00 pm. After driving all over the neighbourhood for three hours, RCMP also looking, he was right across the street at a friends.
On dozens of telephone polls around us are missing children flyers.
Thank God one of them isn’t Brandon.
