Ugh! Today's question of the day was, describe your perfect day and today's show was everything but perfect.
Last night I got a 24 hour ban from Facebook for posting a photo that was deemed too sexual. The amount of issues I have around that will be unleashed during my next therapy session but I am angry that posting a photo of my body (not nude, no nipples were shown) not only flagged community standards but put me in a virtual "time out" which prevented me from streaming my show from Facebook this morning. It's a childish punishment. Why not just take the photo down and keep moving? This 24 hour ban prevents me from commenting or posting from any of my pages. Yes, my business and professional pages. Crazy. So I had to stream from YouTube and sent messages to people and asked them to share it for me. I was determined to have a show today.

Today not only did we talk about what our favorite days look like and how we can make them happen but we also talked about the Georgia Runoff election that as of writing this has called the race for Raphael Warnock, who will be the first black senator from Georgia, but has yet to call the face off between Jon Ossoff (D) and David Perdue (R). Right now Ossoff is leading with 50.2% of the vote with 98% of the states votes counted.
Words can't describe the amount of pride felt knowing that a black woman changed the face of politics in Georgia, a state that historically goes red for major elections. Abrams taking the reigns and leading the charge to get people registered and out to vote despite the very racist past of the runoff election rule to really show that people in this country is in desperate need of a change.
Time will tell what will happen next, but if Ossoff wins the senate seat it will create a 50-50 split of the senate giving the deciding vote to the vice president Kamala Harris. Whoo Hoo!
Here is today's episode, please enjoy it in all of its glory!
And as I like to quote a comment from today's show, Youtube doesn't save the live chat. :(

The best part of covering the news in the Coffee with Chris universe is the interaction in the comments. Listeners commentented about their hardships on receiving stimulus pay and how trustworthy they are of the covid vaccine.
