Funny Story: The Obamas Go To Dinner

This story has been zipping around the Internet. I'm sure it's apocryphal, but it still made me smile. -MT

One night, President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of the ordinary and have a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn't too luxurious. After they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the president's Secret Service chief if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. The chief obliged, and Michelle had a conversation with the owner. When she returned to the table, President Obama asked Michelle why the owner was so interested in speaking with her. She told her husband that, when they were teenagers, he had been madly in love with her.

"So if you had married him," President Obama said, "you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant."

"No," Michelle replied. "If I had married him, he would now be the President."
