It all happened one day as I relaxed on the couch relaxing after a long day when a friend called and asked what I was doing, I said, “I’m lying on the couch watching Oprah and eating bon-bons. She questioned, what’s a bonbon? I went on to explain it’s just an expression my Mom always says in reference to relaxing doing nothing.
The Oprah addition was added to put a real girl, chic or female spin on the phrase and yet my mother does love Oprah. In fact many men love her too, so they can join the bon-bon eating and couch relaxing while watching Oprah movement.
