Yes, The President is venturing out.
Many a things to prepare and the 'right' outfit is essential. Something sleek, sophisticated and a touch of disguise so as to ward off any Paparazzi that may have hinted at this outing. Large glasses a must.
Two special bodyguards are necessary. Someone who knows the streets well, can list off house numbers quite easily and is very good at pushing those buttons to change the traffic lights! Another one who can look sweet and innocent and take any attention away from The President is also handy.
In a whirl wind Annual General Meeting last week at my son's Kindergarten this mother duck found herself in the position of President for the 2011 Committee. There was little fan-fare and no amazement of a female holding such a position of power a la the likes Julia Gillard received, but I was graciously hand-balled a pile of Committee Paraphernalia that I have emerged from and now must venture out and complete her first Presidential responsibility.
