    So much for being a human’s best friend.

    I feel the same way about my cat. Especially when I have to go somewhere or do something I don’t enjoy, and there she lays on the bed without a care in the world. But it would become boring after a while I’d think.

    And then he died. Honorably, at least.

    “………there she lays on the bed without a care in the world. …..”

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Lies — NOT lays. If your cat is laying on the bed she can only be laying eggs.
    Lay is the past tense of lie. I can’t understand why most people can’t get it. Even my own daughter can’t get it.
    I have corrected her all her life but she still says lay — which she learned from all her friends. The more you hear it spoken incorrectly, the more it begins to seem correct. So people will be teaching their kids to say it wrong — into the far future.
    My daughter now says “I;m going to place myself into a prone position,” because she knows that I will correct her if she says, :I’m going to lay down."
    But I will never give up trying.

    We used to have fights about who got the dog to sleep in their rooms. He always ended up sleeping under my parent’s bed because he had to guard the boss(my mom).

    Actually, there’s one way she could use it correctly in that context: “I’m going to lay myself down.” “Lie” can’t take a direct object; “lay” can, even if the object is a reflexive pronoun.

    And this is also what happens in custody disputes in which the parents use the kids to punish each other with regard to visitation — the kids are the ones who always end up losing!

    I would think there are more important things to teach children other than how to say something grammatically correct.
