“We were just kind of searching here waiting for our next hit on this story when we spotted the child,” said 7SkyForce’s Ralph Rayburn. “He’s on the roof of the house.”
This is not the first time the young man has run away. However, he said he will never do this again.
“I was thinking of how hard my mom works to do this, and I just do the most stupidest things sometimes. It’s very difficult for her, and I’m proud of the patience she has for me.”
NOTE: Although I didn’t run away from home, when I was a little boy, I liked to explore, go off on my own, look around, which is not a good idea for a 5- or 6-year-old kid.
There was an incident when my mother was shopping for a coat. I was wearing a leash around my shoulders — yes, I was that bad — with my name, address and phone number printed on a card.
My mom held my leash as we walked around, like a dog.
As my mother was trying on the coat and transferring the leash from one hand to another, I took advantage of the slack and darted from the store into the busy streets of downtown Philly. I raced across the street past a magazine stand where a policeman was directed traffic.
I turned the corner and went into a coffee shop, slid into a booth as far from the door as possible.
When the waitress came over, I ordered a cup of coffee.
Soon, my mother, the store sales lady and the policeman found me, the policeman berating my mom about how tired he was of dealing with women who can’t control their kids.
I wanted to tell the cop to shut up but I was in enough hot water as it was.
