Where was I? Oh, yes: dinner. Before we left, M came into the Oval Office, where I was waiting at my desk, and stood in front of me and sighed loudly. I looked up and said: "That's a beautiful gown, hon, and-- no --it doesn't make your butt look big."
She remained there, foot tapping, hands on hips, her face like thunder. "Well?" she said. It was only then that I noticed. She had changed her her hair and she now had bangs. "Wow!" I sad, "Just... wow!"
Her expression immediately softened and we made our way out to The Beast idling quietly in the driveway, heater blasting warm air into the passenger compartment. It was sandwiched, as usual, between and a couple of black Secret Service SUVs. Moments later our motorcade headed off to Georgetown.
