So I'm writing a story about some cool thing a local second grade class did. I talked to the teacher, and he offered to call me back with names and contact information for a few of his students who were very involved with it, and/or are more articulate than the average second grader. The message he left on my voice mail ended as follows: “Just so you know, I called all the parents and told them that there might be a strange man calling their homes to speak to their children.”

It's not that I try to be creepy, it just sort of happens...

But wouldn't your day have been so much more entertaining if he hadn't forewarned the parents? You can imagine all those explanation that yes, you do want to talk to a nine-year-old, and no, you aren't creepy. If you hadn't thought about it, I would have paid to listen in on the first phone call.
