Thursday morning, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie addressed Florida’s delegates to the RNC. Christie told a personal and humorous story of Mitt and Ann Romney’s visit to the Christie household last year.
Christie recalled his wife’s worries about cleaning the house after receiving less than a day’s notice the Romneys were coming. He also made a tongue-in-cheek comment about having to prep their four kids to be on their best behavior when the Romneys arrived the next day.
Christie said he had instructed his four kids to “make themselves scarce” after greeting the Romneys. But the two youngest kids, ages 9 and 12, didn’t follow his instructions when the Romneys arrived. Instead, they hung around in full kid mode.
On red alert for antics by the two, Christie and his wife were ready to shoo them to their rooms if necessary. The next thing he knows, his 12-year old son is on in-line skates heading toward Mitt Romney — and fast!
