Logic 101 Review

What happens when an irresistable force meets an immovable object?

Well, nothing. Because it's a paradox. There can be no such thing as an irresistable force, nor an immovable object.

However, in real life, what happens is this: The (non)irresistable force is my rapidly foreward-moving foot. The (semi)immovable object is the leg of a heavy chair.

As Sancho Panza says in "Man of La Mancha", whether the stone hits the pitcher, or the pitcher hits the stone, it's going to be very bad for the pitcher.

And that is what my broken toe looks like two weeks after the force met the object.

OK, so yesterday I was making my world-famous rolled cabbage.  After slicing the onions I laid my 8” chefs knife on the counter.  I was momentarily distracted and accidentally knocked the knife off the counter onto my big toe.  Ouch!  Thank goodness it landed sharp side up.  I have a big bruise and can’t wear closed shoes today.  I sympathize and offer my best wishes for a speedy recovery!

Nancy, my toe is having sympathetic pain with your toe.

Now. Cough up the world famous recipe for rolled cabbage, that’s the important part of your comment.

Foot tapping….
