What a lucky little boy Michelle Obama’s first kiss was. I wonder if he knows he’s her first? The FLOTUS gushed about the importance of recess, which led her into talking about her first kiss during the best part of a kid’s day in school.
Check out some of the interview below:
SYBIL WILKES: But you are making history in terms of — in your legacy, because now you’re celebrating the anniversary of your physical fitness program.
FLOTUS: Yes. We are kicking off the third-anniversary tour next week, Sybil, thank you for asking about that. But we are three years into our Let’s Move initiative, and while we still have a lot of work to do, we have more gains to make, we’re starting to see some improvement in the trend lines over these past few years, which gives us reason to hope; that these small incremental changes that we’re encouraging people to have a shift in the culture in terms of what we eat and how much we move is slowly but surely beginning to have an impact.
We’re really starting to push physical fitness, finding ways to get that back into the schools. Because I don’t know if you know, but fewer than 10 percent of the schools in this country have PE or recess. And that’s a far cry from where things were when we were all growing up, and everybody had recess, everybody had gym.
TOM JOYNER: Yes. That’s the only class I got an A in. No, not gym, not gym — recess.
FLOTUS: Recess. It was recess. Well, a lot happens in recess — you’re — had my first kiss at recess.
SYBIL WILKES: And so did Tom, yes. That’s where he makes his best moves — outside.
TOM JOYNER: What was his name?
FLOTUS: Theodore Ford (ph).
SYBIL WILKES: All right, then. Teddy Ford, wherever you are –
FLOTUS: Teddy. Young Teddy.
