引語

1. Quote - Listen to the quote and guess what the slang means.

“Because I refused to spoon with you last night?”

- Adam Sandler just wanted to sleep alone. (Anger Management)

定義

1. 定義 - Study the definition.

lay with another person front to back; cuddle; sleep close together

2. 用法 - Learn how the slang is used.

When you lie down to sleep with another person, how do you lie? Do you like to lie with your head on the other person’s chest? Do you like to sleep not touching at all? Or do you like to lie front to back, each on your side facing the same direction?

If you think about it, two people lying front to back look like a pair of spoons. Their legs are curved a little, but the rest of their bodies are straight, just like the handle of spoon and the little bowl on the end.

Spooning can be uncomfortable in warm weather because there is a lot of body heat. But in the winter, it keeps you warm and it’s nice to be so close to another person.

In the movie Anger Management, Adam Sandler’s character goes to see a psychiatrist for his anger problems. The doctor throws some eggs across the room and asks, “Now why did I do that?” Sandler jokes that he did it because he wouldn’t spoon with him in bed the night before.

Some people like to spoon, but only if they are the big spoon. The big spoon or papa spoon is the person, whose face and chest are against the other person’s back. The little spoon or baby spoon is the person whose backside is touching the other person. In the picture, the man is the big spoon and the woman is the little spoon.

It isn’t only lovers that spoon. You can spoon with your friends when they’re sad. You can spoon your dog, or if your dog is big enough, he can spoon you!

範例

1. Examples - Hear some example sentences.

“Nothing happened after my date last night. We just spooned.”
