The other day whilst unloading the dishwasher, I idly wondered why cuddling up with another person was called “spooning” and I asked “Why isn’t it called, for example, forking?” Of course, as soon as I said it out loud I knew the answer. This led me to wonder if anyone has ever uttered the sentence “I’ll spoon with you now if you fork me later.”
