Michelle Obama: 'splurging is the key to life'
Associated Press
By STACY A. ANDERSON 1 hour ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries.

"How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn't live without a little chocolate, a little French fries."

The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them.

"I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

The first lady said she tries to teach her two daughters balance and healthy meals at home, to offset any ice cream or birthday cake they have while out.

Mrs. Obama said her favorite physical activity is tennis, which she tries to do at least once a week. She said her daughter Malia participates in track and tennis too, while Sasha enjoys basketball and dance.

She urged the young scribes— who ranged in age from 6 years old to 13 years old— to eat balanced meals, drink water and keep moving.

"The more water you drink, the less room you'll have for the junk," Mrs. Obama said.

The children reporters and their parents were part of the 30,000 people visiting the White House for the annual egg roll event.

I was going to say splurging is all kinds of fun when it paid for by some else, namely the taxpayers.
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

It takes a little time to learn how to hit the ball, I understand.
Just being unique doesn't make you useful.
