The President's First Date with the First Lady
It's awkward because the president is terribly proud of himself for arranging what sounds like an average first date: lunch at a museum, a walk and a movie. While Michelle talks, the commander-in-chief beams proudly, fighting the urge to tell us all that he's the one who invented pretending to like art to woo a lady. He blurts out, "Art - guys out there, it impresses people." But we know what he really means, the stud. How he resists the urge to high-five himself we'll never know.
It's also sweet because, although some of the memories are fuzzy, the reasons she enjoyed the date, and still loves him, are clear. Said Michelle, "He showed all the sides - he was hip, cutting edge, cultural, sensitive."
It's a nice story. It's completely spoiled by the wince-inducing plea for a donation at the end. But still, a nice story.
