The First Daughters, in China for spring break with Michelle Obama, were only "vaguely interested" in the Terra Cotta Warriors Museum, according to a pool report. Can you really blame them? Malia and Sasha are 15 and 12, respectively, and it's a terra cotta museum. Sasha in particular has been called out as "not impressed" and "not here for it" throughout the trip, but as anyone who remembers being a tween knows, it's unlikely her pouts have anything to do with her opinions of the Great Wall or Chinese history. She probably has other things on her mind ...

Like, for instance, adults constantly telling her to smile.
