Big yawn on the South Lawn…
Blog Guy, I see lots of photos of Michelle Obama, reading books to school children. This is wonderful. What better way to instill an interest in reading and story-telling than to get to listen to the first lady. Her children are SO lucky!
Um, maybe. Here’s a shot of Ms. Obama reading “Horton Hatches the Egg” at the annual Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn of the White House. As you can see, her own daughter can’t quite stifle a yawn.
That’s unfortunate. Why would that be?
Well, for one thing, Michelle read the book in her native Estonian language, so nobody understood a word.
She also has a very high-pitched, whiny reading voice which is hard to take, and she tends to skip several pages at a time and just say, “Blah blah blah, you know, you know…”
Blog Guy, I think you’re full of crap. The first lady does not speak Estonian or sound whiny. Why was Malia really yawning?
Because she’s embarrassed that her mom doesn’t seem to know about the 2008 Jim Carrey movie, “Horton Hears a Who!” which they could have rented and watched on a big-screen White House television.
