Between her Let's Move initiative, the vegetable garden she planted at the White House, and her wardrobe, there are both serious and shallow reasons I think Mrs. O is fantastic.
I love her. I kind of want to be her. That's all.
I think she might have been the Tina Fey of her day. The paragon of wit to which the rest of us aspire.
I aspire to someday be half as self-possessed and confident as the great Kate Hepburn.
Mrs. Peterson taught my AP Composition class when I was a junior in high school, and she was fantastic. She was the first teacher I ever had who was unabashedly sarcastic in the classroom, and she was, therefore, a role model for me. I think she's retired now, and more power to her; after what she put up with from that class alone, she deserves a nice, quiet retirement.
Right. Happy International Women's Day, ladies (and gents)!
