from my junior high days
I learned that inertia is "the tendency of an object to stay in motion if in motion, or of an object to remain at rest if at rest."
Do I get up off this barcalounger and go out to Barrett Lake and have their fish fry? (45 minutes away, close to the border - the last two or three miles going down a mountain into the valley, and it might rain) OR crack open Ballykissangel, Season Six, which I have in my hot medium sized hands? I was at rest. Inertia won. [Big surprise.] Like I can resist watching an episode of Kathleen learning how to drive. It's all old hat to many of you, but I came to the series late, and this is the first time series six is available to me.
Personally, when "push comes to shove" I always thought Fr. Mac was the best priest of the lot. Warts and all.
