President of the United States is not an easy job. His
problems just keep piling up. Gophers in the Rose Garden.
A missing Ping-Pong table. Countries threatening war again.
Sometimes he wishes for the simpler life ... when he was
if ... just what if ... he could put on a disguise and
show up for school again in Mrs. Appletree's class where
he might learn to solve big problems ... dance the hokey
pokey ... and pause for milk and cookies again.
