February 20, 2011 - Dancing


A fictional account of the private morning conversations of Barack & Michelle Obama by Dexter Yarbrough. Third in a series.

Barack: So, Michelle. How'd you like those old school dance moves I showed the girls last night, huh?

Michelle: Barack, you give black folks a bad rep with that dancin' you do. You looked like you were having a seizure!

Barack: That dance was called the 'Funky Chicken.'

Michelle: Funky is right!

Barack: We need to head back to the White House later. I have a busy day tomorrow.

Michelle: I know. What's up with the Wisconsin thing?

Barack: Well, the Dems don't have the votes. Hopefully the unions can help force the issue. If not, it could be a ripple effect around the nation.

Michelle: Well, you know I come from a strong labor family. Working class folks need protections.

Barack: Yep.

Michelle: How is Bill Daley coming along?

Barack: Well, Valerie is getting him caught up on the issues.

Michelle: Good. There are so many Chicago folks around. Makes me more comfortable being in Washington.

Barack: Yep. Did you see that latest poll on the greatest US Presidents?

Michelle: Yeah! Can you believe that Reagan got the highest percentage for 2011? I didn't care for him.

Barack: Yeah! But he was a great speaker. But what kills me is that Bill Clinton came in 3rd place! I mean, he is cool and everything, but dude got caught doing the nasty with an intern! What's up with that?!

Michelle: Yeah, I know! Just don't you do anything with any of these girls around here! I know about these secret tunnels!

Barack: Michelle, you have nothing to worry about! I only have eyes for you!

Michelle: Yeah, right! I'm sure that clown in New York said the same thing to his wife. Responding to an ad on Craigslist - with no shirt on! Crazy!

Barack: You are all the woman I need!

Michelle: Just remember that. Don't have me beat you down like Tiger's wife did to him! Ha ha ha!

Barack: Ha ha ha!!!

Michelle: I just came up with a new dance.

Barack: Really? What's it called?

Michelle: 'The Washington DC Hustle.' See, you start off in the center. Then you move a little to the left. See? Then you move a little to the right. Got it? Now you move your butt in and out, like this. Ok? Then you turn around in a circle. Right? And guess what? You're back in the center again! See?

Barack: I like that!

Michelle: Do it right and it might just get you a second term. And top ratings on the Presidents list. Got it?

Barack: Got it!

Michelle: We'll be ready to leave around 4PM.

Stay Tuned for More 'Morning Conversations...' with Barack & Michelle Obama, next time!

      Obama is the new Prince Charming for the country. It really is good to see two people who care about each other and who respect family values.

      That "Washington D.C. Hustle" is about right, except I'm not so sure it all comes back to the center. Maybe if they take lesssons...:)

      Thanks, N.E. I actually have fun writing these. It is easier for me to write speaking as Michelle than for Barack. She seems more down to earth!
