As Michelle Obama sat through the inauguration ceremony, she seemed to waver between an attempt at a poker face and a Jim Halpert impersonation, gazing into the camera with a look of exasperation that seemed to speak volumes.
Michelle Obama's lack of a poker face is probably one of the greatest things ever.

After eight years in the public eye and a very emotional weeklong farewell tour, can you blame her? There’s no doubt she had plenty of thoughts racing through her head as she reentered life as a private citizen. Just, you know, some of those thoughts were also worn pretty plainly in her expressions.
Here are some of Twitter’s favorites.

I will forever appreciate that Michelle Obama gives us a crisp 25 minutes of faking it before her face can't hide that she's ready to go.

Though she and Barack are taking a vacation to Palm Springs, they’ll be back in action at the Obama Foundation upon their return. Keep an eye on Michelle’s newly reclaimed Twitter handle, @MichelleObama, for all of her faces and thoughts over the coming four years.
