Re: You lazy bones/You're a lazy bones
My conversation might go like this:
Are you supposed to be on the table? No, you're not, pretty girl. So get down off the table (pet pet pet, thus rewarding her behavior) Yes, of course you're a pretty girl. But you don't belong on the table, you naughty kitty (pet pet pet). Okay, down now.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
