Awesomest Little Kid Ever Not Available for Comment

DENTON — Investigators are looking into how a young boy managed to slip out of a Denton day care center unnoticed, then cross two busy roads and end up a half-mile away at a Hooters restaurant on Tuesday afternoon.

The five-year-old boy walked out of the Imagination Station child care center in the 2300 block of San Jacinto Boulevard near Golden Triangle Mall.

He then crossed busy Dallas Drive to go to a RaceTrac gas station to purchase a soft drink and snacks.

After leaving the station, he ended up in the Hooters parking lot about a half-mile away.

The restaurant’s general manager Brian Mason and his employees spotted the child shortly before 5 p.m. Tuesday.

“I was pretty impressed that he made it that way without getting hurt,” Mason said. “He let us know that he looked both ways before crossing the road, stopped in the middle and then crossed again.”

With no chaperone for the boy in sight, Mason called police.

“We kept him in the back coloring and kept him pretty occupied until the police showed up,” he said.

Deborah Pugh, the day care owner, said the boy had asked to go to the bathroom before he disappeared. When his father arrived minutes later to pick up the child, workers said they realized the boy was missing.

Pugh said she believes he got out through a fire exit, which, by law, must remain unlocked.


As the child of a single parent I can tell you that day care is lame.  Who the hell can nap on a yoga mat when there’s a booger-eating slow kid dryhumping a pile of blocks next to you?  If I was going to paste and color, I’d sure as shit rather do it where the titties are at too.

Props to you, restless little day care kid.  You are truly a halfninja, and evidently quite good at crossing the street.

Why doesn’t Hooters start a daycare center anyway?  I’m sure there are tons of single fathers that would deem it worth their patronage.
