From ABC News:
Marine Asks First Lady Michelle Obama to Marine Corps BallMeanwhile, over at CBS News, they shortened the headline.
While sorting donations at the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign, this afternoon First Lady Michelle Obama received an unusual request.
Across a pile of race cars, the Associated Press reports Lance Cpl. Aaron Leeks invited Obama to be his date for next year’s Marine Corps Ball.
The 20-year-old Marine from Maryland told the AP, Obama said “she’d love to go.”
“Actually she said I’d need to speak to her husband, too, but she said she’d love to,” Leeks said.
Back in the day, asking someone "to ball" meant an entirely different thing...and it wasn't about a fancy dance.
