A few members of our family are afflicted with frequent bouts of spoonerism. Causing a lot of mirth and general joviality whenever it occurs.
For some reason the word spoonerism never came up until several days ago, and one of the children immediately asked if the definition was: a weird obsession that causes people to want to use only spoons to eat.
After choking back a laugh I explained the actual definition, but their definition brought back some memories.
Growing up we weren't allowed to use a fork to eat. It was considered prideful and worldly. It was a source of concern when my parents noticed LV always used a fork. Thankfully he had enough good qualities that they chose to overlook it without making too big a deal out of it.
