Missing: One 'Ku, Slightly Used

'Ku seems to be missing. Its Thursday so I came in and started looking around but all I found was this little note taped to my monitor --

Many weeks, no rest.
I go free like summer breeze.
But just for a week.

I checked with Amy and she knew nothing about it, except the strange message in her menu at dinner last night --

I take flight, like kite
But I will return next week.
I miss you long time.

Then the strange reports started flooding in. One such report told of a drunken 'ku seen doing body shots off of five hookers and a donkey in Cancun. Another spotted something described as "short, squat and Asian" streaking across the field of a Yankees game. Even more disturbing was the email I received from Sally Lettes of New Glockenspiel, Tennessee:

Yesterday I was in the farmhouse washing dishes and I heard all this mooing out back. Sure enough, there was 'ku out tipping cows. Then he made off with all my sheets hanging out to dry.

Worse still? Duane Thompson of Port Baughty, New Jersey emailed me with this:

You seen your friend 'ku lately? I swear I was out walking with my lady and out the corner of my eye some bitch jacked my Ford Probe. All I heard was this damn fool screaming, "Thanks for the lift yo/I return it but if not/Make you Grand Master."

And finally, thank god for TiVo. As I was watching the Democratic National Convention last night, I thought, just out of the corner of my eye, I saw a suspicious sign. Sure enough, upon repeated viewing, there 'ku was holding up a sign reading KU: 5-7-5.

Rest assured, 'ku will be back next week. If you do happen to see it in the mean time, drop me a line and let me know what 'ku's getting up to.

Duane Thompson? Are you sure it wasn't Duane JOHNSON, aka, The Rock? Because that would be the coolest ever.

Somebody was hogging my bed last night. I thought it was my dog, but possibly it was the 'ku?

He was running in my yard.
I phoned the police.
