We know the training of “don’t talk to strangers” is successful when kids will run away from a grandmother trying to keep kids from catching their death in cold rain. However, it’s totally understandable when the kids mistake 69-year old Granny for a 20-40 year old dude in a feather tipped hat. I might have run away too.

The creepy man who schoolchildren said tried to lure them into his car Friday turned out to be the well-intentioned grandmother of fellow students, police said today.
