Did you hear? First lady Michelle Obama was spotted shopping at a Target in Virginia this week. Thank goodness for vigilant journalists for catching this breaking news. Unfortunately, what she purchased remains top secret.
I hope and expect there will be endless political commentary on the Target trip from Fox News, CNN, MSNBC and all the rest of the media outlets that we all depend upon to tell us what to think.
My thoughts on the Michelle Obama Target trip?
1. I’m jealous that she has a Target 15 minutes away from the White House, while I have to travel 40 minutes to find one.
2. The first lady is clearly a much stronger person than I. If the press followed me and reported on all my little errands, it would make me crazy: “Writer/blogger Lisa Clark was spotted at a NC Walmart this morning, purchasing deodorant and 7 different kinds of lactose-free milk…”
3. Whatever she bought will look trendy, classy and fashionable on her. On me, not so much.
I’m sure the first lady was simply doing her part to help the economy, not to mention that pushing a shopping cart is great for keeping those arms nice and toned. Regardless of your political persuasion, let’s all follow Mrs. Obama’s lead and get out there today and help the economy. That’s right – consider it your patriotic duty to go buy stuff.
