I went to the pool with an ex-boyfriend from college today. He introduced me to the concept of "big spoon." He didn't have this terminology when we were dating, and I found it completely hilarious, yet the correct phrasing. Big spoon is the person in the back of the spoon - the big spoon. You have to engulf the little spoon to be the big spoon. He told me that my arms weren't long enough to make me a good "big spoon." Either this was a way to get free cuddles, or just a demonstration of spooning terminology. I think I'll add the term to my vocabulary though.
