The Underbelly

by Joy Monger

It’s hot right now. Like almost 100 degrees.

And everyone in my family, including dogs and cats, are laying around in front of the fan trying to keep cool. Bradley (the cat) and I both prefer laying with our bellies exposed. He likes to lay on the floor with his legs splayed up against a wall and his furry belly wide open. He looks exactly like I feel.

I tried to take a picture for you but he wasn’t feeling it. And then I got too hot so I laid back down again.

PS: I just realized I don’t know when to use laying, lain, laid, etc. Anyone know the rule?
