News Item:  Dr. Jill Biden goes shopping for groceries though, of course, she doesn't
have to.

Jill, you didn't have to go shopping ...

I know Joe, but I felt like it, and I wish you would remember to call me "Dr. Jill."  You
know how hard I worked to earn that title.

Gee!  I am really sorry Dr. Jill.  I didn't mean to hurt your feelings.  You know how
sensitive I am to others' feelings.  It's one of my strong points, empathy, and I
emphasize it in my election campaign ...

That's okay then.  

But Dr. Jill you didn't say why you went shopping for stuff they have in the White
House kitchens and can get easily if they don't.

It's just we live in a bubble, Joe.  I wanted to be part of the real people ... like the
proverbial Mr. and Mrs. Jones.

Bear with me for four years, Dr. Jill.  The years just seem to fly by anyway as we get
older, and I am so happy I fulfilled my life's ambition.

And I just want to cook ...

Well you can, you can.  Just call down to the kitchen and tell them you are coming ...

And have a line of chefs looking at me and snickering when my back is turned.  Just
because I wanted to cook for you with my own hands ....

What a loving thought.  Come closer darling ...

Be careful, your arthritis can be painful ...
