Michelle Obama Calls Kids to Tell Them to Get Ready For Santa, Kid Wants to See Her InsteadS

It turns out one of the First Lady's official duties is to call kids on Christmas evening to let them know Santa's on his way. Which is both adorable and kinda goofy. This year, she got a child on the horn who was more interested in meeting her. He was all, "Screw Santa, bring on the FLOTUS!" Smart kid.

The New York Times has the entire transcript, and it's awesome. Here's a taste:

MRS. OBAMA: I'm working with the people who track Santa by satellite, and I'm looking at the screen right now and they say that - it's showing that he was last spotted in Italy - Venice, Italy. Can you imagine that? He's all the way in Europe. And in about 20 seconds he's going to be headed for Croatia.

ANTHONY: Can you come visit me in Texas?

MRS. OBAMA: Yeah, he's heading your way. He's heading your way. But you know what, Santa doesn't come until you're fast asleep. You do know that, right?

ANTHONY: Yeah, I was talking about you trying to visit me.

MRS. OBAMA: Oh, me come to visit you. (Laughter.) Well, I don't know if I'm going to be able to come and visit before Christmas tomorrow, but if ever I find myself in Texas next year - and I know I'm going to be coming to Texas one time next year - hopefully we can see each other then. How does that sound?

ANTHONY: Will you come to my house?

MRS. OBAMA: Yeah, I don't know if I can come to your house. I might not be able to do that. But I'll be keeping an eye on you, though.

ANTHONY: How about my school?

This kid can't stop, won't stop. Of course, the First Lady handled it like the pro she is. As for the kid, I'm thinking he should find a job in sales because ABC, baby.
