This is both fascinating and heart-breaking: Michelle Obama was photographed today shopping alone in an Alexandria, Virginia Target store by an Associated Press photographer. It’s fascinating in that the first lady — who has mentioned in the past that she enjoys sneaking away from the Secret Service to go shopping by herself incognito — in that it reveals a shared human desire to have some time to oneself if only for a couple of hours, and it’s sad in that she was busted by a photographer.

The ability to be anonymous is one of the most under-appreciated things in life.
