On Thursday morning First Lady Michelle Obama surprised White House visitors taking a tour with a quick ‘meet and greet.’

The surprise event with the Mrs. O was broadcasted live on WhiteHouse.org and it offered a glimpse of what the First Lady is like when she’s not in front of studio cameras. (For example, who knew Mrs. O knows what Ugg boots are!? And that she’ll compliment you for wearing them!)

There were a dozen or two people who met the First lady and it was mostly quick 30-second small-talk chats. However, the last three visitors included a teen girl who got a special White House lesson from the Mrs. Obama:

“Do well in school, eat your vegetables, listen to your teachers, stay out of trouble, read, listen to your parents.”

Let that be your mantra for 2012.
