"The one thing people don’t realize is we can’t do little things like open windows," Michelle said. "I look forward to getting in a car and rolling down the window and just letting the air hit my face. I mean I haven’t been in a car with the windows open in about seven years if you can imagine that. So I’m gonna spend that first year just hanging out the window."
