Note to self: never take Ellen DeGeneres on a shopping trip unless you're ready to cause a spectacle.
First Lady Michelle Obama could have used a warning when she walked into a local CVS with the comedian by her side. With just a few months left in the White House, Obama used the visit to ease back into the usual errand routine—except nothing about the visit was typical.
First stop: grabbing a cart and coupons. "There's coupons because you know you're going to need these probably. It's been a while," Ellen instructed. "You push the basket because no one is going to push it for you."
DeGeneres was full of nifty lessons, including what CVS really stands for. "CVS stands for cotton, Vaseline and stuff," she quipped, but the First Lady wasn't fooled.
After testing out the CoinStar machine, Michelle headed to the electronics aisle to pick up a pair of headphones for her younger daughter, Sasha Obama. In the process, Ellen managed to get her hands on a backscratcher and began scratching one of the store's employees. "Can you chill out on the itching," Obama begged. "This is not how you behave!"
