President Obama wishes he could go to the supermarket like a regular guy and longs to people-watch in Central Park.
The President told Hearst magazine publishers and editors that he misses ordinary pleasures and pastimes now that he is living in the White House fishbowl.
“I just miss – I miss being anonymous,” he said. “I miss Saturday morning, rolling out of bed, not shaving, getting into my car with my girls, driving to the supermarket, squeezing the fruit, getting my car washed, taking walks. I can’t take a walk.”
If he could do what he liked, the President said, “I just want to go through Central Park and watch folks passing by … spend the day watching people. I miss that.”
Obama said he is not a golf fanatic. “It’s the only excuse I have to get outside for four hours at a stretch,” he said.
