Osman Yahya and President Barack Obama

Twelve-year-old Osman Yahya had the opportunity of a lifetime Thursday when he had a chance to interview President Barack Obama at a Washington, D.C., library. The sixth-grader also proved that he didn't care that he was interviewing the most important person in the world, especially when that person doesn't know how to move on to the next subject.

During Osman's interview with the president, the topic up for discussion was young kids and writing. But apparently the president was a little too long-winded for Osman.

"I think you've sort of covered everything about that question," Osman stated as the president was delving further into the topic.


Always the good sport, the president laughed at the student. "Osman thinks I've been talking too long," the president said.

In an interview with Politico, Osman gave his reason for interrupting the president. "I didn't mean to cut him off. I was just nudging him to get on," said Osman.

And what exactly was the rush?

Lunch, of course! "Most students were hungry," Osman said.

Here's a lesson to the president: Never come between students and their lunch period.
