Why “Bonked out Cherry Plum”?

This blog name came to me because I remember a friend telling me she was ‘bonking’.

I immediately thought to myself…woah!…that’s pretty rude! She quickly explained to me that this was bike rider’s lingo for :

bonk v. to run out of energy or grow exhausted on a ride.

Cherry plum?
cherry plum v. mum (Australia rhyming slang)

There is a pretty good chance people won’t find my post. My husband thinks it’s a pretty silly blog name. We discussed this for hours.

But I think that if someone stumbles across it then it’s mean’t to be. You found me didn’t you?
