What Is a CouchIssue?
Well, a bit of history first:
My mother told me that my grandmother, would have to either lie down on the floor or the couch before she could hear any type of news. It helped her somehow, go figure. She just had to lie down.
So, when I came home from school, my mother would be running around the house getting things done. Breezing by in a blur, she would say, "How did it go?"
I put my school bag on a chair and sat down in the living room. I talked towards the kitchen, "So, my teacher was telling us..."
"HOLD ON!" My mom would yell. "Let me lie down first!"
Then, lying down on the couch with her head resting on one of the pillows, she put her right arm over her forehead. All set. She cued me with, "Okay, I'm ready."
So, anytime I wanted to talk, her first question was always:
"Is it a Couch Issue??"
