The Secret Service got a little visit Wednesday from one of its protectees — First lady Michelle Obama.

Politico reports that she checked out the intricate works that goes into protecting her family.

She called the daily task of agents “pretty scary.”

“All I can say is, after my little tour, is ignorance is bliss,” Obama told a packed crowd of Secret Service employees who had gathered in a conference room to hear her speak, according to Politico.

“I just — I just don’t want to know,” she said. “You all can handle that. Just tell me when — where to run.”

Obama also said the Secret Service agents at the White House have become like family, and that they sometimes have little spats over who gets which agent on outings, Politico reported.
