Christian Harris (03:28):

How are you

Sevan Matossian (03:30):

Living the dream in someone else’s nightmare. I am. Oops. Oops. Oops. I am Chris Harris. How’s that?

Christian Harris (03:50):

Uh, that looks, that looks good to me. I don’t have my glasses on this morning. I can’t find them. So I can’t really see.

Sevan Matossian (03:56):

Yeah. Do you only have one pair of glasses?

Christian Harris (03:59):

I have one that’s in my gym bag. I left my gym bag at the gym and my other pair that I leave at home. I can’t find. So

Sevan Matossian (04:06):

Is that panic mode for you? Are you like, are you fucking kidding me about to go on a podcast and I don’t have my glasses.

Christian Harris (04:11):

Yeah. A little bit, a little bit.

Sevan Matossian (04:14):

Um, I looked up a second. Yeah. That would freak me out. I looked up a second ago and I couldn’t find my coffee on my phone. And of course they’re both like here,

Christian Harris (04:21):

But right in front of you.

Sevan Matossian (04:22):

Yeah. But I, but I panicked for a second cause I had this in my face. I was like,

Christian Harris (04:28):

Yeah. So if I’m squinting in the entire time, I, I apologize.

Sevan Matossian (04:32):

I’m sorry. That blows. That blows. I have so many pairs of glasses. Um, yeah, that can’t happen to me. I would be fucked sometimes. It, it, I, I, I challenge myself. Sometimes I go out places and I’ll leave my like, say like I go to the beach every day and there’s at least once a week, I’ll leave my glasses purposely in the car to walk. And that’s because I heard some shit that like you don’t, you don’t process vitamin D unless you get sunlight directly on your eyeballs. I don’t, I do not know if it’s true. You don’t, but you don’t process it to its highest levels or whatever. What was that noise? Oh, I lost you. I lost you. Something happened to your audio. We heard a little me and then you, you vanished, maybe your headphones turned off. No, sir. Nope. How

Christian Harris (05:25):

About now?

Sevan Matossian (05:26):

Ah, yes.

Christian Harris (05:27):

Ah,

Sevan Matossian (05:28):

Back live with Christian Harris. We listened to your, to your, uh, video this morning, But your, your rap video, 30,000 views I’ve rappers on the show and none of them, and none of them have had as many views on their video as that video, all the rappers I’ve had on the show. I think all the rappers I’ve had on the show combined, haven’t had that many. What

Christian Harris (05:50):

Talking about what rappers have you had on your show?

Sevan Matossian (05:52):

I had, uh, the, the one that comes to mind right away is Leika Ellie. Uh, he he’s, he’s out, he’s outta the east coast. He had a song that says, let the white kids say nigga. And I thought that was fucking brilliant. And so it was just like, all right, well, he’s coming on the show. He was a great guest. He was a great guest. And actually that’s not true. I think most of his rap songs have like 200 views. But I think maybe that one had like 4 million, you know what I mean? That

Christian Harris (06:19):

It went viral.

Sevan Matossian (06:20):

Yeah. And it’s a great song. Like he did. He did a really good job too. It’s not, it’s not just, uh, click bait. It was, it was solid. It was a good song.

Christian Harris (06:30):

So what’d you think of it?

Sevan Matossian (06:31):

He was ahead of his time. I loved yours. I I’ve listened to it. Three times. Yours was awesome. What year is that?

Christian Harris (06:38):

Uh, that’s gotta be like around 2010.

Sevan Matossian (06:41):

Uh, why not?

Christian Harris (06:42):

Pre pre CrossFit days.

Sevan Matossian (06:43):

Why not more?

Christian Harris (06:46):

Um, I was actually starting to get to the point where I was getting some buzz and I was doing some, uh, small local events, uh, in the city and I got wifey pregnant and being a rapper. Isn’t really a conducive lifestyle to, uh, having a family.

Sevan Matossian (07:05):

So you pivoted to the next, most difficult profession? Uh, CRO, uh, oh, we lost you. Oh, I think maybe you muted yourself. Nah, now you’re better. You’re good. I can hear you now. Nope.

Christian Harris (07:21):

Good. Now.

Sevan Matossian (07:23):

Yeah, something was like accidentally muting. Your, you were accidentally muting yourself or something is automatically,

Christian Harris (07:28):

It might have been my, uh, my headphones.

Sevan Matossian (07:31):

Um, but, uh, switching from rapper to, um, Jim owner, uh, CrossFit athlete, a grid league athlete. That that’s a tough, that’s a tough toe too, right?

Christian Harris (07:43):

Yeah. I mean, I, uh, growing up, I never really wanted the real life job. I’ve always had like dreams and aspirations of like being either like a, you know, pro ball player of some of some sort. So it was never really like, I wanted to be like a doctor or be a lawyer or something like that. You know? So after my rap career, I wanted to get into fitness a bit more and started pursuing CrossFit. Um, one of my coworkers, I used to work at this place called Parisi speed school, which is strength and agility training for young athletes, primarily just teaching them running MC mechanics. And, um, he kept telling me about cross for about a year. And I kept saying how dumb it was and whatever. And I tried, my first workout, got my ass kicked, got hooked. And, um, here we are.

Sevan Matossian (08:37):

And that Parisi school that’s the school. That was like, that was what you were gonna use to make money, to take care of the family.

Christian Harris (08:44):

I mean, at the time I was four working there, man. Um,

Sevan Matossian (08:50):

I was homeless at 24. Nah, may maybe close. Yeah. Yeah. I was close to homeless now maybe 24, 25. I was definitely on the tit. I was definitely like, my mom was paying for like, it was, it was either, she was about to cut me off or she was paying for everything and I mean everything. I mean weed, gas, food,

Christian Harris (09:09):

All of it.

Sevan Matossian (09:10):

Alcohol. Yeah. Like school, like she paid for all of it. Yeah. It’s crazy. Crazy, crazy. Crazy. Did you ever sell weed?

Christian Harris (09:21):

I did not. No.

Sevan Matossian (09:22):

No. Did you ever do, did you ever sell any drugs?

Christian Harris (09:26):

Nope. No. Smoked a bit. I mean, that’s about it.

Sevan Matossian (09:30):

Do you smoke now?

Christian Harris (09:32):

No,

Sevan Matossian (09:32):

It’s not. It’s not conducive with, uh, high performance, right. Burning shit. And then inhaling the fumes.

Christian Harris (09:39):

I mean, some would argue in the other direction, but for me personally, just, you know, breathing in smoke and things like that. I mean, I remember when I would smoke, I would just be coughing and hacking along for the longest time. So

Sevan Matossian (09:55):

When you can’t

Christian Harris (09:56):

Really see that helping me right now?

Sevan Matossian (09:58):

No. When, um, I, I, when you started CrossFit, was there anything that you, that was in your life that you gave up? Like I smoked cigarettes. I started CrossFit at 34. Um, wow.

Christian Harris (10:12):

So my age now,

Sevan Matossian (10:13):

That’s what you are now. You’re 34. I’m

Christian Harris (10:16):

Uh, I’m sorry. I’m 35. I, I keep forgetting.

Sevan Matossian (10:19):

Yeah. I keep telling people I’m I’m 49 and then they remind me in the comments that I’m fitty, it’s not, it’s not cool. Um, was there anything that I had to give up smoking to do CrossFit? Like not, not I had to, but I was like, okay, th this I’m I’m like, I’m doing fight gone bad. And then I’m walking outside and lighting a cigarette. It’s like this, this, I was just thinking, this could not be

Christian Harris (10:39):

Good. Doesn’t really match up.

Sevan Matossian (10:41):

No. And it was just cuz I wanted to get better at CrossFit, but I really like smoking. I really enjoyed like, nicotine’s crazy. It’s so good. Yeah. But, but, but I could, did you have to give anything up?

Christian Harris (10:53):

Uh, no, I didn’t give up anything.

Sevan Matossian (10:56):

No, no. You, you were already on the straight narrow. How about this? For the most

Christian Harris (11:01):

Part? Like I, I started to eat much cleaner. Um, I mean at the time paleo was really popular, so I followed paleo for a little while. Um, yeah. I mean, I, I drank occasionally then I drank, you know, more frequently than I do now. I don’t really drink much at all.

Sevan Matossian (11:24):

How about this? Do you have to give up the elliptical when you started doing crosswalk?

Christian Harris (11:29):

No. I didn’t have to give that up. That was uh, about last year.

Sevan Matossian (11:34):

Have

Christian Harris (11:34):

You driven one of those?

Sevan Matossian (11:35):

No, but I, but, but I’m us. I’m a really open-minded guy, but when I see the, the there’s a, I’ve never seen the three wheel one, the 3 0 1 actually is a little bit cooler than the, the ones we have around here on the beach is some goofy fuckers on it and their bikes though. Right. And they go way too fast. They go way too fast. No one should be going that fast on a two wheel elliptical.

Christian Harris (11:56):

I tell you what though. It’s a lot more challenging than you than you might think.

Sevan Matossian (12:01):

Yeah. I, I, I, the ellipticals at the gym, you know, I haven’t been on one in 10 years, but the I’ve tried them maybe 20 seconds at a time. They’re supposed to be low impact on your knee. I guess they’ve make my knees feel horrible.

Christian Harris (12:15):

Yeah. It could be, you know, that mid range, um, like sheer on the knee the entire time. Like if you’re on it for 40 minutes.

Sevan Matossian (12:23):

Yeah. For me it was 10 seconds. How did you end up with that?

Christian Harris (12:27):

Uh, this company street Strider reached out to me and, or like, would you mind promoting this? And I was like, check it out. But I originally liked the idea of having it at the gym because like when we send classes to do 400 meter runs and workouts, it’s like people go around the building, but you never really know what they’re doing around there, you know?

Sevan Matossian (12:48):

Right. It’s

Christian Harris (12:49):

Kind of a way to follow the, the class and hold them accountable.

Sevan Matossian (12:54):

Hey, anything you did with your shirt off would look cool. I wanna see you do that with your shirt on and reassess the greatest thing that ever happened to that bike was you getting on it? It’s

Christian Harris (13:04):

Crazy.

Sevan Matossian (13:06):

Um, so do you have it at the gym?

Christian Harris (13:10):

I actually just took it home. Um, about two weeks ago, my wife wants to hang out, play around with it.

Sevan Matossian (13:16):

If, if, if I had that, I would for sure ride it that’s for sure. Or at least, I mean, everyone wants to try it. Right. If that’s sitting around the gym, everyone’s like, let me try that thing.

Christian Harris (13:24):

A hundred percent.

Sevan Matossian (13:27):

You, you, 23 IME yourself.

Christian Harris (13:31):

I have recently. Yes.

Sevan Matossian (13:32):

Yeah. Did you use a fake name?

Christian Harris (13:35):

No.

Sevan Matossian (13:38):

Uh, we, we, we got our son 23 and me and, and someone told my wife to use a fake name just in case. Like we got an uncle that like killed someone or something. You know what I mean? Like they can, they can triangulate on that. You know that, right? Yep.

Christian Harris (13:50):

What is, what’s your background?

Sevan Matossian (13:52):

I’m Armenian

Christian Harris (13:53):

A hundred percent.

Sevan Matossian (13:54):

Yeah. A hundred percent. And my what? The, and what was fascinating to me about yours is my, my wife’s Jewish she’s Ashkenazi. So my kids are 51%, uh, Jew and 51, uh, 49% Armenian. But I heard you say that you you’re predominantly Jewish and African.

Christian Harris (14:11):

Yes.

Sevan Matossian (14:12):

Yeah. That’s crazy. That’s cool.

Christian Harris (14:14):

Um, I mean, I, I knew that going into it. It was just cool to see the breakdown of like where, you know, different blood lines and stuff came from in Africa. So it was pretty cool.

Sevan Matossian (14:27):

Who who’s Jewish in your family, your mom or your dad?

Christian Harris (14:30):

On my mom’s side.

Sevan Matossian (14:32):

So it’s like, And is

Christian Harris (14:36):

Half black, half white. What’s that? Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (14:38):

Is Nazi. Do you know?

Christian Harris (14:42):

No.

Sevan Matossian (14:42):

No. Okay. Let’s just say that again. You’re you’re, you’re essentially half black and half white.

Christian Harris (14:48):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (14:50):

So it’s funny you say that. Cause I asked someone yesterday, I was talking to, I said, Hey, is Christian Harris black? And they started fucking laughing their ass off. And I’m like, what? And they’re like, listen, how stupid the fucking question is. And I go, what do you mean? He’s like, obviously black. And they’re like, no, it’s just crazy that we live in an age where you have to ask if someone’s black. And like, I look at like, because Black’s of color, right? Like if I were to say, is he red? They’d be like, no, is he yellow? No. And, and the reason why I was asking is cuz I thought it was funny cuz there’s these some fucking idiots out there who will say some negative shit about me, like I’m racist. Well, they don’t really say it. They wanna say it, but they ain’t got the balls to say it and I’ll fuck ’em up. But they, um, but I had a black dude on yesterday, Darion weeks. And then who was on before him? Uh, Zach George, Zach George on? Yeah. Have you met him?

Christian Harris (15:42):

I’ve met him once,

Sevan Matossian (15:43):

Man. He’s nice.

Christian Harris (15:45):

Yeah. Big fell.

Sevan Matossian (15:47):

Yeah. Big, big. Yeah, just even through the screen looks big. So I was like joking. I was like, oh shit. I got my own black history month. And they’re like, no, that was last month. It’s it’s woman’s it’s woman’s month. And you’re fucking up this month. Yeah. Cause you had three dudes on, in a row. Are you, um, where, where are, where, where is home for you? Where are you from?

Christian Harris (16:08):

I currently live on long island. Um, people from long island. You have to make sure that you say you live on long island. Not in it. That’s like a big thing. Uh, but I grew up in Brooklyn.

Sevan Matossian (16:24):

Yeah. To me. It’s all. That would be all New York.

Christian Harris (16:27):

Yep. All New York

Sevan Matossian (16:28):

From California. Okay. And are, and so you’re born in Brooklyn and, and, um, are, are your mom and dad still married?

Christian Harris (16:35):

They’re not.

Sevan Matossian (16:36):

Yeah. So that’s

Christian Harris (16:37):

Pretty, um, they split when I was pretty young.

Sevan Matossian (16:40):

And then how did they meet,

Christian Harris (16:44):

How did they meet? I don’t really remember the story of how they met, but I do know that they used to work at burger king.

Sevan Matossian (16:51):

Oh yeah.

Christian Harris (16:54):

Um, my mom had me at 19 siblings. I have three brothers.

Sevan Matossian (17:06):

And where are you in that pet

Christian Harris (17:08):

And then I have half brothers and, and a sister as well.

Sevan Matossian (17:13):

My dad. Are you the oldest?

Christian Harris (17:14):

I’m the oldest. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (17:16):

Oh shit. How is that? You like that? Or is that hard?

Christian Harris (17:20):

I never minded it. No. As a kid.

Sevan Matossian (17:24):

Do they look up to you?

Christian Harris (17:27):

I think a little bit. Yeah. Um, I think I’ve, I’ve been the most levelheaded one throughout the years. So I think, uh, I said a, a pretty decent example for them. I would say

Sevan Matossian (17:42):

My dad was the oldest kid and he has, um, eight or nine brothers and sisters and, and dad was born in Lebanon. You, it was a tough situation. He was born into like just crazy economic depravity. But um, I saw the immense amount of responsibility. He felt being the oldest son. And now I wonder that about my current oldest son, cuz he does play the big brother role. He does. You know what I mean? He’s in charge. He takes responsibility even though he is seven already. If I yell at the five year olds, he’ll he’ll step in, you know, he’s got like something to say, Hey, protective on him. Yeah. Yeah. So you

Christian Harris (18:18):

Have two?

Sevan Matossian (18:19):

Yeah. I have three altogether. I have two, five year olds and a seven year old. I got twins.

Christian Harris (18:23):

Twins or

Sevan Matossian (18:25):

Yeah, twins.

Christian Harris (18:26):

Okay. Yeah. I’ve got two boys. Um, does

Sevan Matossian (18:29):

Your oldest step in, does your oldest step in if you’re scolding the little one?

Christian Harris (18:34):

Uh, not particularly, no, But uh, he is, he definitely takes the little one under his wing and um, you know, just really plays that big brother row really well. He’s a really good kid.

Sevan Matossian (18:46):

Like he, and he knows not to light him up, like to everything has to be leveled down a little bit. Oh

Christian Harris (18:51):

For sure. For sure. The little guy though he, uh, he’s the bruiser he’ll beat up the big guy.

Sevan Matossian (19:00):

I know. Isn’t it crazy. And will the big guy just TA he just takes it right?

Christian Harris (19:04):

Pretty much. Yep.

Sevan Matossian (19:05):

Yeah. That’s how my oldest son is. He just takes it until he doesn’t.

Christian Harris (19:10):

He, he,

Sevan Matossian (19:11):

Yeah, it’s crazy. I, um, my, my five year old was running through the house the other day and he dropped a, uh, he dropped something on the ground, a video game that I had bought him. And uh, there he is. That’s your big guy right there.

Christian Harris (19:25):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (19:26):

Oh wait 10 and six. Okay. So he’s way bigger.

Christian Harris (19:30):

Oh yeah. He’s he’s very tall for his age.

Sevan Matossian (19:34):

Yeah. Wow. How, how tall are you?

Christian Harris (19:37):

Six one.

Sevan Matossian (19:38):

Okay. So you’re tall too. So, so my seven year old, my five year old’s running through the house, he drops a little video game. He has, I walk over to him and I start just kind of like yelling at him, like not yellings, a little harsh, but I like tell him, Hey, like, Hey, that’s expensive. I paid for that. I work for that shit. And you’re just dropping it. Like it’s nothing. Yeah. And my seven year old walks over and he is like, and I go, what? And he goes, how about, oh my God, I’m so sorry. You dropped your game. Is it okay? I’m like,

Christian Harris (20:08):

What game was it?

Sevan Matossian (20:10):

I just like, my kids just had no, no, no, no. My kids aren’t that lucky. They, I, I would go, I had this thing on Amazon where it has like 500 games from the eighties. You know what I mean? It’s got like pet Defender. It’s like, it’s just a, but I just think it’s funny. Like, so I did it, I did what he said. I don’t normally do that, but I was like, oh, you know, I was like, right. I can try that approach. Like, instead of getting mad at him, like, you know, show a little empathy, like, oh, you must be bummed. You dropped

Christian Harris (20:36):

That. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (20:39):

Um, so you, so you’re born in Brooklyn. What was that like mom, parents divorce early or,

Christian Harris (20:45):

Uh, I mean, they were never married, but I think it was around eight or nine or so that they kind of parted ways. And I mean, I moved around a ton as a kid. I’ve went to probably about seven or eight different schools, um, you know, from elementary through high school. So I’ve had to adapt a lot, you know, I was always the new kid in school, so it was tough a bit. But I think a lot of that attributed to the type of person that I am today. So I guess I’m thankful for it.

Sevan Matossian (21:28):

Why did you guys move around? Like getting evicted or rent got to, no,

Christian Harris (21:33):

Just always trying to find the next best deal, I guess, on a, on an apartment or something like that.

Sevan Matossian (21:41):

I have this friend who has just a shitload of money, more money than one human being can count in a lifetime. And by the time his kids were in the third grade, they had gone to like seven schools. And I just thought like, why would you do that to your kid? That would be like the hardest thing. I mean, right. Every like that’s horrible. Right. As a kid switching school, it is like,

Christian Harris (22:03):

It is tough, but I mean, kids are resilient. I mean, I talk about it with my wife all the time, how we want to, how I get outta here of New York now because of the taxes it’s just out of control here. Um, and, and go down south maybe to, to the Carolinas potentially

Sevan Matossian (22:23):

That would

Christian Harris (22:23):

Be, I don’t wanna take them outta school, you know?

Sevan Matossian (22:27):

Yeah. Do you have any friends from elementary school who are still your friends? Like were you able to do have any of that

Christian Harris (22:34):

From elementary school? No, not really. Uh, more, more middle school. There’s there’s like maybe two or three kids that I’ll talk to every now and again, but I do have a good group of friends from high school that I’m very tight with and it’s a pretty large group. It’s like 2020 of us that stay in touch.

Sevan Matossian (22:53):

Damn. And that are those people you met your senior year?

Christian Harris (22:57):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (22:59):

Cause your senior year you switched high schools, right? That was the LA I mean

Christian Harris (23:02):

End of junior year. Middle of junior year.

Sevan Matossian (23:04):

Wow. And then, so, um, were you good looking kid? Like did girls, like you Girls liked you?

Christian Harris (23:13):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (23:14):

So every time you switched schools, there was that at right? Say

Christian Harris (23:20):

That again? I’m sorry.

Sevan Matossian (23:20):

E every time you switched schools, there was that you were like the new dude.

Christian Harris (23:24):

Yeah. I was the new guy. That’s, I mean, I met my wife in high school and that’s kind of like how the ball got rolling. She, uh, she was on me

Sevan Matossian (23:35):

And, and that was your, and that was your senior year, your, or your junior year when you showed up at that new school? She was, is like, oh, who’s this new dude?

Christian Harris (23:42):

Uh, junior year. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (23:43):

Junior year. Cause she’s already seen all the other dudes for the last, like three or four years. Yeah. I forgot about that phenomenon in high school

Christian Harris (23:51):

To bring a little new flavor there, you know?

Sevan Matossian (23:52):

Yeah. Yeah. And did you like all your high schools was, was school. Did you like school, even though you were constantly switching?

Christian Harris (24:00):

I didn’t mind it. Math was kind of my thing at the time. Um, so yeah, I didn’t, I didn’t really mind school.

Sevan Matossian (24:09):

Math was your thing. What, what, what do you mean? You just liked it? Like you were good at it.

Christian Harris (24:12):

I just liked it. I, it came naturally E uh, it was easy for me. I didn’t really have to study too much.

Sevan Matossian (24:21):

What’s your wife’s name?

Christian Harris (24:23):

Danielle.

Sevan Matossian (24:24):

And so you meet her in high school and, and do you know right away? Oh, shit. This is gonna be the one.

Christian Harris (24:31):

Mm. I mean we,

Sevan Matossian (24:35):

Oh, sorry. Do you even know now? Do you even know now?

Christian Harris (24:39):

No, I know now. Okay. For

Sevan Matossian (24:41):

Sure. I made a pre-supposition. So you, so you met, so you met, so you met her in high school and in that, in, you started dating in

Christian Harris (24:51):

High school. And then she broke my heart when we graduated, I guess, because she was, you know, she’s half Italian, half Puerto Rican and her parents super strict. So she kind of wanted to like, get out and live a little bit. So she broke my heart when we got out. And then, uh, we ended up finding our way back to each other and here we are.

Sevan Matossian (25:16):

And, and you, and so now you’ve been together basically

Christian Harris (25:20):

A long time.

Sevan Matossian (25:21):

Yeah. 15, 16 years.

Christian Harris (25:24):

Yeah. 2013, we got married.

Sevan Matossian (25:28):

And so you both have seen each other go through a lot of different stuff.

Christian Harris (25:31):

Oh, for sure. Different phases. Um, you know, she’s over the past couple years, like with career changes and things like that, um, she’s developed a skin condition called vitiligo. I’m not sure if you’re familiar with that.

Sevan Matossian (25:50):

No, sir.

Christian Harris (25:50):

But it’s a condition where you start to lose pigment in your skin. So it’s usually brought on, uh, from a hormonal standpoint and, um, stress really, uh, brings it out. So she’s kind of dealt with, been dealing with that for the past. I’d say about five or six years. So kind of like through that, I’ve been, you know, learning how to help her cope with it, but she’s, she’s a strong, strong woman, tough cookie.

Sevan Matossian (26:27):

What, what happens with that Vigo? Is it bad? Like, can it hurt you or is just a, it’s

Christian Harris (26:31):

Just, no, no, it’s literally just a cosmetic thing really.

Sevan Matossian (26:35):

Is that what Michael Jackson had?

Christian Harris (26:38):

I believe so. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (26:40):

Is it,

Christian Harris (26:40):

And then he ended up just like completely bleaching himself.

Sevan Matossian (26:45):

That is what he did.

Christian Harris (26:46):

I think so. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (26:48):

Yeah. Fuck. I don’t know. But he just started getting spotty and then You, you, you, are you excited about being married for 50 years? I mean, like you can do it, you know what I mean? I think about that just my wife,

Christian Harris (27:05):

Like I’m excited for our, for our tenure. Uh, we want to go away to, to Italy for our tenure, you know, and just doing those kind of things. Maybe renewing the vows, having a, a big shin dig.

Sevan Matossian (27:21):

Um, did you have kids before you were married?

Christian Harris (27:24):

Yes. Uh, the older guy, basically, we were together for about 10 years at this point. And then I got her knocked up and I’m like, shit, I should probably marry this girl.

Sevan Matossian (27:35):

Yeah. Smart. But, but he came out first.

Christian Harris (27:38):

Yeah. Yeah. So at our wedding, he was about, uh, nine or 10 months.

Sevan Matossian (27:44):

Okay. Like

Christian Harris (27:44):

He was just walking at, around that time.

Sevan Matossian (27:47):

We had my wife and I, we had our first kid. And then when she got pregnant with the twins, I was like, oh shit, I should, um, we should get married in case like, one of us dies. It’s like an easy transition. You know what I mean? Like you, you get the car, you get the house, like all the shit. Just You’re pretty. What city are you in? You said you’re in, you’re in long island, on long island, on

Christian Harris (28:10):

Long, long island,

Sevan Matossian (28:11):

Long island. And that is the city long. Island’s the city.

Christian Harris (28:15):

So it’s weird long island I would say is kind of like, maybe like San Diego in a sense. And isn’t there different towns within San Diego

Sevan Matossian (28:32):

Or kind of, we have county. We have, and then we have cities. So like, there’s like, there’s like Los Angeles county, uh, Los Angeles is a bad example, but like, we, like, we have Contra Costa county. That’s one of the counties in California and inside of that, there’s all these different, uh, cities. And so the county basically the way I think of it, the county doesn’t have a mayor and, and the cities have mayors.

Christian Harris (28:53):

Right. It’s so it’s very similar. And that’s the,

Sevan Matossian (28:57):

So it, long island is a, is a, basically a city within New York county, I guess is a way to think of it. The broad area. Yeah. And, and you would wanna, you would wanna leave there, you’ve been there your whole life and you would wanna leave there. Is it, is it a concrete jungle you live in? Like when I think of New York

Christian Harris (29:13):

Manhattan, very, very suburban, uh, long island is yeah.

Sevan Matossian (29:17):

Like you have parks and like Hills and,

Christian Harris (29:20):

Uh, it’s very flat here. There’s basically zero elevation anywhere out here.

Sevan Matossian (29:27):

Is, is everything developed?

Christian Harris (29:29):

Yeah. It’s very suburban here.

Sevan Matossian (29:31):

Okay. So I get,

Christian Harris (29:32):

Have you heard of like the Hamptons or Monta?

Sevan Matossian (29:35):

Yeah. Yeah. Very beachy. That’s the fancy place.

Christian Harris (29:39):

Yeah. So I’m about one hour from New York city and then about an hour and a half from the Hamptons in Monta. So I’m really smacked dab in the middle of long island.

Sevan Matossian (29:52):

And where, and where’s your mom live?

Christian Harris (29:54):

She just moved about a month ago to South Carolina.

Sevan Matossian (29:58):

Oh shit. Oh, she would love.
