Letters to the President: #817 'An early start to the weekend'

Reporter's Note: I often wonder what President Obama does when he’s not being all presidential - like, does he ever make his own bed anymore or oil a door? My letter today gives him some insights into my life, just in case he is wondering about some of the same things.

Dear Mr. President,

Not to make you all envious, but I took the day off, and it was just great. My wife and I have been gradually clearing out the accumulated stuff of 25 years of marriage, so we spent the better part of the day separating things in an upstairs room into “relocate,” “donate,” and “throw away” piles.

In that regard you’re lucky. Pretty much everything you and your family touch for the rest of your lives will go into your archives. “Hey dad, what should I do with this hamburger wrapper?”

“Well, first, don’t let your mom see it. And second, I don’t know. Stick it in a drawer for the presidential library. Ha!”

Must be nice.
