'It Will Be Interesting To See What Life Has to Offer.'

The New Yorker has excerpts from an interview the Obamas participated in back in 1996 for a photo project about American marriages. T

Barack has helped me loosen up and feel comfortable with taking risks, not doing things the traditional way and sort of testing it out, because that is how he grew up. I’m more traditional; he’s the one in the couple that, I think, is the less traditional individual. You can probably tell from the photographs—he’s just more out there, more flamboyant. I’m more, like, “Well, let’s wait and see. What did that look like? How much does it weigh?”

That’s cute and swell and all, but what’s with your boy’s high-waters in this picture?

    they gots long legs G.D. (my dad -6’4- stayed with some high waters) i’ sure they were fine when they sat down

    but michelle know she not right with them leggings

  • quadmoniker

    I know LF. I keep trying to figure them out. Was she just wearing leggings, or is there something over them we can’t see. I just keep thinking, are they sure this wasn’t 1986?

  • Stop the hate, G.D. You’re just jealous of his lovely ankles.

    I dunno, maybe he took a cue from some of the old heads here in The Chi, that pull their pantslegs up before they sit down in order to show off their socks. Even if the sock aren’t that remarkable.

    quad – like i know she look great but… like there the indoor at home look and then…company’s here

    i hope there’s a pair of shorts or the skirt is up in there…

  • Dude, the man is sitting down with his legs crossed in a deep couch. Your pants are gonna pull up in that situation. If they didn’t, they’d be dragging on the floor when you stood up.

    And you guys cannot be hating on Michelle in the pedal-pushers. She looks awesome. I hope she cuts her hair again as soon as they’re in the white house.
