Ooops, I hadn't finished!!
I laid myself down preterit tense
So you can see that the main problem with these "stupid" verbs is that the preterit of "to lie" is the infinitive form of the verb "to lay"!
And that's why about half the people that are English even screw it up!! Ha, ha, ha. So, since half of the English people get it wrong you don't have to worry too much!!
What you must NOT say is something like, "I got laid last night". I'll let you look it up rather than explain it, or they might kick me off the website!! I'm just trying to be funny!!
Have a good day, seo!!! And don't worry too much about to lie and to lay at this stage - everyone will know what you mean!
