Ahh to be young with nary a care in the world. Just worry about what fun, awesome thing you are going to get to do next. Like, oh I don’t know, head to the White House and hang out with Obama in the Oval Office.
A photo taken back in June of a young boy doing a pretty epic face plant onto a couch in the Oval Office is now going viral because what could be more boring than hanging out with the President, am I right?
President Obama was meeting with the boy’s parents on June 23rd when photographer Lawrence Jackson captured the priceless moment on film. The boy’s father was a Secret Service agent who was leaving the White House (hence the meeting with Obama).
I can’t get enough of this picture, which was released on Monday on the White House’s official Flickr page. I can just picture this little guy dying to get a hold of his lego, dinosaurs or whatever his toy-de-jour is. And when no entertainment presents itself (because let’s be real, how boring is it for a little 4, 5, 6-year-old to stand around while the grown-ups talk?) there really is only one logical thing to do…
Face-plant yourself on the couch and let those grown-ups know how you’re feeling (aka bored out of your mind).
The joys of being a kid! And, bonus, when he is old enough to realize how cool it is to meet the President of the United States, he’ll have a pretty great picture to remember the moment by!
