If you're familiar with the AP Stylebook, you will be familiar with the lay/lie rule, but don't ask me what it is.
I don't know when someone is lying on a bed or laying on a bed. Shall I lay or lie on the bed?
My old journalism professor, Mack, could explain the rule to you very well, and if you are like me, you would then understand it for 30 seconds, but thereafter would have to refer to your AP Stylebook to figure out whether the cats are laying or lying on the bed.
One time, when I was younger, I won an AP Stylebook contest, proving that, at that moment in time, I knew the AP Stylebook rules better than the other 19 college students from California who'd bothered to show up for that particular competition at that year's Intercollegiate Press Association conference.
And then I barfed. Because I was hung over.
I haven't worked in newspapers for five years, so I threw my AP Stylebooks out. This is me basically saying I will not be working in newspapers ever again, unless someone chooses to allow me to write a weekly column about my cats.
And with that, I present more cuteness that will make you want to tear your own eyeballs out, it is just that damn cute. Enjoy. And happy Friday.
