Of her two children, Michelle said, "I'm not sure which one's Sasha and which one's Malia". Like, 'I'm a plate spinner.' You know, those jugglers who keeps spinning those plates and if one is starting to wobble, he spins it.

She had bought new white sneakers to wear on the trip, and within a day, after all the pushing they did, her shoes turned reddish brown, stained with the cinnamon-hued dust of Nairobi.

But her best line was delivered with a grin when she said, "Clooney is my freebie!"
