Kid buries face in Oval Office couch as parents meet President Obama

At first glance, it might seem like this kid is being an ungrateful wretch but see it from his perspective.

He was probably made to get up early and he's had to wear an uncomfortable jacket ALL day. Mom and Dad have been up to ninety since they woke up because they're all going to meet some guy called Obama.

He's likely starving and he's boooorrrreed.

He just needs to rest his head. Face first. Into the couch.

The (brilliant) photo was taken by the White House Photographer during a visit with a departing Secret Service agent and his wife. Taken back in June, this pic along with many others have just been released to the White House's Flickr stream.
