And now for… the history of getting lied™.
By San Diego Comedian Sindi Somers
My grandma is a very sweet lady, but she gets upset at some things I do. She says I use improper grammar and words incorrectly. One day I was visiting her with my dog and my grandma said,
“Where did Ginger go?” I replied, “she went in the other room to lay down.”
“It’s LIE down!” My grandma corrected me and then proceeded to tell me the rule. “When you’re talking about inanimate objects, ‘I’m going to lay the hairbrush down.’ When it’s living things, it’s lie down.”
“Okay grandma.” I said, “I’m going to go get lied™ then.”
