Michelle Obama talks about pros and cons of life in White HouseMarch 7th, 2009 - 6:04 pm ICT by ANI
New York, March 7 (ANI): Being the First Lady of United States has not stopped Michelle Obama from holding on to her sense of humour or so it seemed when she spoke about the pros and cons of life in the White House.
Featuring on the cover page of Oprah Winfreys O Magazine, the mum of two revealed how she kept her personal life going even under the scanner.
The Princeton University graduate cited instances of what is left of the occasion when she tries to catch up with her friends, who already know everything about her beforehand.
“That’’s the thing about being the first lady: You try to catch your friends up on what’’s happening in your life, and they”re like, ”We know — we read it in the paper,”” the New York Post quoted her as saying in the April issue of the O Magazine.
I like to imagine she said, “Um, no doi!” she added.
Recalling moments of her daily life now, she said: “Once someone on my staff e-mailed to tell me that the president was on his way. But you could already hear the helicopter, so it was like, well, no kidding.”
She continued: “The girls don”t move. I”m like, ”You want to see Daddy landing in the helicopter?” ”No, that’’s OK. We already saw it.” (ANI)
