In an open letter published in the Wall Street Journal, Trouble Twins Jenna and Barbara Bush had a few words of heartfelt advice for incoming first daughters Sasha and Malia Obama. Surprisingly, "don't try to buy booze with your grandmother's ID" is nowhere on the list, but the twins still had lots of suggestions for their replacements - some highlights, below:
- "Slide down the banister of the solarium" and "play Sardines on the White House lawn."
- Celebrate Halloween even if your parents have dragged you along on some boring official business - and if you're stuck on Air Force One at the time, "trick-or-treat down the plane aisle"!
- "When your dad throws out the first pitch for the Yankees, go to the game. "
- Go for that puppy, "because sometimes you'll need the quiet comfort that only animals can provide." (Like when you're hungover?)
