He stared at the foil covered loaf as if it were a small nuclear bomb. "You can't bring me stuff like this," he said, not touching it. Could he be allergic to bananas? No - but he was definitely allergic to the idea that I'd tried to do something special for him. "You made too much of an investment," he said nervously.

" These are the things that really matter over the long term," President Barack Obama told senior advisor Dan Pfeiffer. The president told Pfeiffer that “the advice I give everyone about marriage" is to ask yourself these three questions about your potential spouse.

“So are you guys moving together? This is the one, huh,” Pfeiffer recounted Obama as asking him, per an excerpt shared on Twitter and on the Huffington Post.

  As city waits for ex-president's library, luster of Obama tourist sites fades On a sunny Wednesday afternoon, there were no tourists walking through the doors of the Hyde Park Hair Salon, where Barack Obama regularly got his signature cut before he became president. No one in the neighborhood seemed to know Obama was in town, only a neighborhood away at the Stony Island Arts Bank to greet his first class of Obama Foundation fellows.

The Obamas have been open about their strong bond, which continues today after 25 years of marriage. In May, Michelle shared a throwback photo from their October 1992 wedding, and confirmed the pair are “still having fun.”

  Ask The Salty Waitress: How obnoxious is my litany of food questions? Dear Salty, I generally have a difficult time deciding on what I’d like to have when I go out. (Everything looks so good!) To help me decide, I generally have a few of questions for my poor server: Are your collards made in-house or are they from a can? Are there caraway seeds in your rye bread? (Because let’s be honest, caraway seeds are disgusting.) Describe your home fries, please. Are we talking oven, fried, or skillet potatoes? I’d also like to add that I always warn them that I am one of “those people,” and I’m sorry for that. I’m always polite, thank them for everything, and start tipping at around 30 percent.

And last October, the former president honored his wife with a sweet video message he unexpectedly delivered during Michelle’s talk with Shonda Rhimes at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women in Philadelphia.

“I had to crash this party because today we have been married for 25 years,” Obama said in the video. “The idea that you would put up with me for a quarter of a century is a remarkable testament to what a saintly, wonderful, patient person you are.”

“It was a lot easier for me to do it,” he added with a smile, “because the fact of the matter is that not only have you been an extraordinary partner, not only have you been a great friend, somebody who could always make me laugh, somebody who would always make sure that I was following what I thought was right, but you have also been an example to our daughters and to the entire country.”
