Hi, Im Gideon Hock a 12 year old and today I will be sharing with you the story on how I met the Vice President. I was in my room playing video games when my mother walked in. I didn’t really pay any attention, she comes in my room all the time. but when she started to come over to me I looked at her, before I could say hi she said “Do you want to go to the Vice President's Residence” and without hesitation I say yes. She had been invited to a Christmas Party at the Vice President’s Residence. My dad had decided to pass so I was the one who she asked to go instead. A few days later we head out to Washington DC. When we arrive we immediately go to the hotel and get ready the party was later that night. Once we were done we headed out got an uber and drove there. There were a lot more people there than I expected. I saw the security mans Ipad and it said that they were expecting around 250 guests. As we went inside we were allowed to take a tour of part of the residence we couldn't see like his room or his kids room but we got to see the living room and the dining room and some other rooms downstairs which was very cool. Then we made our way to where the main event was, it was like a room but it was shaped like a tent, it had hard walls and a pointed top. After eating like 5 servings of pork chops (They were quite good) the Vice President came out to give a little speech before he had to leave right after the speech we were able to go up and talk to him which was really cool. Now let me get this straight, I don’t like it when people call me champ, but if Mike Pence calls champ i’m good with that but that’s about the only exception. I hope you enjoyed my story today.
