Before the questions let me say a big welcome back . You had us all very worried "disappearing" like that. Check out the old chatroom files for some "where is beccaann?" discussion. Anyway I hope you are keeping well and am delighted to see you back.

Now the questions

Is it an event? something of a fixed duration? if so less than 1 hour? 1 day? week? month? year? more than this?

Do you want to sleep on the couch? is sleeping on the couch a preferred option to sleeping on a bed? the floor? Is this couch in your own house? any other relevant H? A? M/Fs? relationships? pets?

Ok, here's my own clarification:

Now that it is over, I can sleep on the couch at my HAF friend's house. Before it was over, I slept somewhere else. This somewhere else was not my own house, and was not in the same house with my HAF friend and the couch.

Did you sleep on a couch? Floor? Bed? Sleeping bag?

All of this is essentially correct, but the questions remain: why am I not just sleeping in my own bed? And why am I sleeping on this particular couch (and happily) as opposed to somewhere else?

Were/are you the sole owner of your house? Would you have slept at (pretty much) any house besides your own?

So there's a reason you slept at specifically Jane's house, right? Was there an advantage to sleeping at her house over other houses? Is Eric involved in this advantage?

Did you sleep on the couch before your relationship with Eric? Do you sleep on it because you don't want to sleep alone at home? Or is there a more specific reason/advantage? Do you sleep on the couch every night?

RECAP

Now that my relationship with Eric is over, I can sleep on the couch at my friend Jane's house. Sleeping on this couch is preferable to other options because of comfort, and another yet to be determined reason. I do not sleep on this couch every night, and there is a particular reason why I sleep there the nights that I do. Jane's house, and the couch, are 8 hours driving distance from my own house.

Information still needed: When/why do I sleep on this couch? What other reason than comfort is this couch preferable to all other possible sleeping arrangements? Why did I/could I not sleep on the couch before my relationship with Eric ended?

Is your workplace relevant? Other place you go to regularly? Or irregularly? when you sleep on the couch, do you usually do so one night at a time? More than one consecutive night? Is the time of year relevant?

So your own house is ~8 hours away from both your ex-boyfriends' house and Jane's house, right? I take it you like to visit the city where Jane and Eric live? But when you were dating Eric, you had to stay with Eric when you visit the town? But now that you're not dating him anymore, that frees you up to stay with your friend Jane?

But now that you're not dating him anymore, that frees you up to stay with your friend Jane?yes... although i'm equally free to stay at other friend's houses... they just don't have the couch!

so, one last piece of the puzzle... besides that it's comfortable, what is it about this couch that makes me so darn happy to sleep on it?

Did the couch used to be yours?yes! actually, it still is....

Two years ago I left Athens, Georgia and moved to Baton Rouge Louisiana for graduate school. I left behind my boyfriend and many friends, and I anticipated having to put a lot of furniture in storage, since i was moving in with a roommate who also had a whole house full. At the same time my friend Jess (Jane) was moving into a new house and had no living room furniture. So, my couch now lives at her house, until I need it back, rather than collecting dust in a storage facility.

This couch is AMAZING. I mean really, it's the best night of sleep you ever had. Really incredible...and i MISS IT!

So, for the first year and a half I was gone, whenever I came back to visit it was primarily to see my boyfriend, and I of course stayed at his place, which is what I wanted, of course, but I sure still missed that couch. Now that our relationship is over, when I go visit my friends in Athens, I need a place to crash, especially since alcohol is usually involved with these girls! What better place to sleep when you're on vacation than your own fantastic couch?! Even when others are staying at their house as well, I get automatic dibs.

By the way, I'm glad to see you back. When I first discovered the site, I spent a lot of time reading the archives, where you had many posts in which you mentioned living in Athens. They stuck with me, because I had recently moved there myself. In particular, I remember one about the good old Red Clay Cafe, where I've eaten many times. Anyway, when I finally ran out of archives and got up the nerve to start participating in live puzzles, you had disappeared, and so I never got a chance to say hi then. So hi, and welcome back!
