Malia was a little embarrassed by her parents “as we rode the elevator downstairs,” her mom recalled. “I was barefoot, and Barack was in flip-flops. Malia wore a long black skirt and an elegant bare-shouldered top. She looked beautiful and about twenty-three years old.” Barack and Michelle successfully played it cool, although Malia found their whole encounter with him to be “a bit excruciating,” Michelle wrote. Typical teen.
