Is it just lassitude that I forget the word “inertia” when I most need it?

Inertia and lethargy seem to go hand in hand, but I never forget the word for
that listless feeling. And although torpor or indolence may do as a stand-in for
“inertia,” inertia has a very specific meaning as well.

It is generally because of its scientific implications, its use as a law of physics that I most look for inertia and have trouble finding it.

I am counting on this little essay to help me keep it in mind.
