The First Lady is Popular!

Michelle Obama and her uber polite chicklets stopped in for gelato. So exciting! I have been telling and re-telling the tale, so here it is....abbreviated.
  1. Night before, blocked off parking on the block
  2. Secret Service arrives next day during a busy Saturday afternoon.
  3. Pulls manager to side - "shhhh....close the store. Mrs. Obama and her daughters on their way.
  4. Manager..."Uhhhh.....ok"
  5. Secret Service (yes they had those swirling earthingies on) "Don't tell anyone."
  6. Manager...."Uhhhh....ok" (Fails to call me, but I let her live)
  7. Slowly escorting all customers after they finish their gelato out the door.
  8. Doors locked!
  9. Motorcade pulls up.
  10. The First Family minus the Leader of the Free World arrives.
  11. Tries lots of flavors. They know the drill. They know they can get two flavors with a small. They know EVERYTHING.....
  12. Mrs. First Lady gets Cioccolato Scuro (I know, good taste, right?) and Chocolate Banana (Even better. The underappreciated fruit gets props by the most powerful woman in the country. Sorry Hil.)
  13. The girls go for the caramel kill - Dulce de Leche and Fior di Latte. Yes, Fior di Latte = Sweet Milk Flavor (Amish Milk!!!)
  14. Mrs. Obama's Nutrition Initiative. She knows EVERYTHING!!!
  15. Manager managed to smile and be her adorable, smart self. Phew...
  16. The First Family sits at the blue martini chairs (kids love the chairs).
  17. The Secret Service sits at another table enjoying their gelato.
  18. Philly lines up at the windows and gawks. I wish I were there!
  19. Secret Service pays and leaves a huge tip!!!
  20. Tears, were shed. The First Family leaves.
Now, said manager was so awestruck that she neglected to get any pics. PU-LEASE!! PU-LEASE!! If any said gawkers got one...can we have it?

There you have it. First Family with their First Flavors.
