Michelle Obama just wanted to talk about vegetables when she was interrupted Monday by a member of Girl Scout Troop No. 60325.
"Do you have Just Dance?" the little girl asked, referring to the video game. "Do I have Just Dance? What is that...Is it like Dance, Dance Revolution? We have Dance, Dance Revolution. Do you guys know what that is?" the first lady continued to a chorus of yeahs. "I don't know about Just Dance, though, I can't say I can vouch for that, but I'm sure the Just Dance people are happy you brought it up," FLOTUS laughed. "Should give her some commission or something," she added.
The first lady was spending a portion of her Monday planting the White House kitchen garden with a group of Girl Scouts from Fairport, N.Y., and students from D.C., Greensboro, N.C., Chester, Pa., and Ames, Iowa. And she was happy to answer the occasional question, which usually came in the form of an interruption. "Do you like living here?" another Girl Scout asked. "Yes, it's fun to live here. It's fun, especially on a day like this because you guys are going to help us plant the garden, right?" FLOTUS replied.
Once they got working, however, it was Obama's turn to ask the questions. She prodded two Girl Scouts who just so happened to be wearing similar blue shoes as the first lady. (Obama's were of the denim-colored Superga variety). "What are you learning in government?" she asked. "Do you have to report out when you get back?" she mused. And then she asked the girls about their grades in school. "You hear that world, we have Girl Scouts with good grades," FLOTUS shouted to the flock of reporters covering the event nearby.
