    What is a "tissue box"? ;)

    Kleenex is a popular brand here in the states... it is just a throwaway cardboard box that holds the tissues which are mainly used to blow one's nose into and then be thrown away...

    I believe it is a box that one keeps facial tissue (also known in the US by
    a brand name, "kleenex") in. The author mentions that it is full of
    cushions. That would make me think he was referencing the softness of the inside of a box full of facial tissue... very soft and cushioned on the
    inside.
