It's the Obamas' 16th wedding anniversary! (And you thought I forgot! And I almost did!)
Barack stopped by Penny's Flowers in Glenside, Pa. early Friday to buy Michelle the bouquet in honor of their wedding on Oct. 3, 1992. He told an audience at a Pennsylvania rally that he planned to spend his anniversary with the wife in Chicago at a "romantic dinner."
As Obama took the flowers, wrapped in cellophane, he thanked Darcy: “You did a really nice job. These are beautiful. I like the arrangement and everything. It looks nice.”
But before leaving, Obama was a bit anxious the flowers might wilt during his flight home.
“Now, this should hold OK for the two-hour flight?” he asked the flower shop owner, who said they’d be just fine.
