#CPChatNow- 7/31/2019

This past week in #CPChatNow was buzzing as always. Members talked about a recent Micah Fowler interview, a computer mouse versus a track pad, coffee mugs, and also a peanut butter debate. This is #CPChatNow co-host, Devin Axtman, taking you along for the ride on this week’s recap.

First, Speechless continues to be a popular topic during the chats. Forbes had a recent interview with Micah Fowler that is definitely worth checking out. The interview sparked discussion during the chat about how Speechless handled family and disability.

zach tweeted his enjoyment of the interview question about how speechless dealt with family. i tweeted about how my favorite episodes were how the show focused on how cp impacts other siblings. zach tweeted his appreciation of the show's honesty particularly the bonfire episode

Next, debate turned to whether members prefer a trackpad or a mouse with opinions mixed between a trackpad and a mouse.

zach asked if people like a trackpad or mouse. blemi said trackpad. i commented i like apple's trackpad because you can move the cursor and click all on the trackpad
jeni tweets she lost homework assignments because of trackpads due to her heel of her palm hitting the trackpad

Also, #CPChatNow weighed in on the age old debate, smooth or crunchy peanut butter.

Next, Zach asked members how they handle their coffee mug. Blemi and Shira responded they handle both the handle and the mug.

Zach asked if members held the coffee mug handle or cup.  Blemi and Shira responded they handle the both the handle and the mug. blemi said she doesn't take chances after spilling hot liquids

Zach shared he uses travel mugs because they do not get hot and they have lids to prevent spills.
