Sasha and Malia Obama celebrated their last night as residents of the White House by engaging in a typical teenage activity: throwing a pizza and slumber party with friends.

During a question-and-answer session, the former first lady answered questions about her time at the White House, including how her daughters spent their last days in their former home.

“They had a sleepover ... because my girls are so normal, they’re like, ‘Well, eight girls are going to be sleeping here because it’s our last time, and we want pizza, and we want nuggets.’ And it’s like, really?” she told the audience.

She also said Malia, 18, and Sasha, 15, found it difficult to leave the home they had known for eight years.

Obama said that she tried keep her composure because she knew any tears that she shed would be misconstrued.

“I didn’t want to have tears in my eyes because people would swear I was crying because of the new president,” she said.

Obama offered a small insight into her post-White House life with the audience, saying: “Friends are surprised I answer the door now.”

She reiterated that she has no interest in running for office.
