Words on Wednesday

The words this week are selected from Group one from the blog of Elephants Child, they are the following. Splurge, Bonking, Veteran, Windows, Lasagne, Inconceivable

   Having achieved a reasonable body weight of about 78 Kilos, It is INCONCEIVABLE that I  have a SPLURGE on a diet containing LASAGNE. or engage in BONKING or marching with VETERANS. Flag-waving from WINDOWS would be the limit to VET day jollities.
While on the subject of bonking which has little to do with banking or money unless you enjoy paying for such excesses of the flesh, the word Bonking was attributed to its first usage by the dear departed Maggie Thatcher a former British Prime minister.

I had no idea that Maggie was credited with coining the word bonking. I wonder whether she contemplated taxing the activity.

EC. I was informed ages ago that this Bonking word was first uttered by Maggie Although I am in doubt, simply because Sitting Bulls Son complained about his given name at birth. 'Two Dogs Bonking'.

Nice to hear from you and agree re Foleau. I hope you are soon feeling much better.

I am doubtful about Thatcher inventing the word bonking. It sounds very London East End to me. It is a brilliant soft word as a substitute for words we might consider crude.

Thank you, Elsie and Andrew, for your comments.

It happened again today. Gosford road trip.

    Another trip to Gosford today. Two hours drive plus parking there and back. plus doctors fee. which quite easily could have been sorted ...
