spoon

verb; acronym
to temporarily evict one’s roommate(s) for the purpose of obtaining privacy for a sexual encounter Allegedly an acronym devised by students at the College of William and Mary for Seek Possible Other Occupancy Now. However, this phrase sounds strained and may have been coined after the word itself. Another theory holds that spoon is analogous to fork, as in to fork out of bed; fork connotes direct confrontation or face-to-face eviction, while spoon as used here refers to a situation in which the roommate leaves for tne evening and is unable to reenter the room upon his/her return. A cute euphemism for a fairly common college phenomenon. Word is distant enough from the concepts it describes to allow use in front of many parents, professors, etc. without suspicion.
 
Rebecca must’ve gotten spooned last night, cause she was sitting in the lobby looking ticked at 3 a.m., and then this morning Kate came to brunch with some guy.
