While President Biden is busy… well, being president, Dr. Biden has a jam-packed agenda of her own as FLOTUS and an educator at Northern Virginia Community College—a job she has held since 2009, per NPR.
“She’s been traveling all over the country,” he explained to Vogue. “And doing major events for me…and for the country. And so I’ll find that I’m working on a hell of an important speech and I’m distracted. And then I may not be working on one and I want to go and hang out with her, and she’s working on an important speech! Or grading papers.”
At the time, Dr. Biden agreed that they have to make an extra effort with their demanding lives, adding, “Well, it’s true because we’re both so busy. And so we have to, I think, try a little harder to make time for one another.”
She went on to add that having dinner is a key opportunity to have a moment together.
“Sometimes we eat on the balcony; last night we ate in the yellow Oval, upstairs,” she noted. “It’s just part of the day that we set apart, and we still light the candles, still have the conversations, still put the phones away.”
And with phones strictly away, at least we know that means there’s no fexting over dinner!
