After months of luxuriating in a backwards baseball cap in various tropical locales, Barack Obama is ready to return to the political fore.

The former president’s first public appearance as a political figure commences Monday in Chicago: Obama will conduct a town hall-style meeting with University of Chicago students.

As happy as we are to be seeing Obama Stateside, we’re going to miss his adventure-seeking alter ego, Brobama.

There are just so many beautiful memories…

We’re feeling nostalgic already.

The Obamas may be on their way back to the real world, but we’re so glad they had a chance to unwind post-presidency.
