I think it's a good story. I couldn't find any mistakes.I would like to know if this story is written right....I have to show someone the difference between "to lie" and "to lay" (incl. "to lie" as in "not telling the truth") in a story :
The man laid the newspaper on the table. He thought about the lies he told his friends and decided to lie down on the couch. After he lay down he remembered that he didn’t lay the newspaper where he should have laid it. His wife might get mad when she figures out he had been lying on the couch all afternoon, thinking about how he lied to his friends…beside that he had laid the newspaper in the wrong place. He could lie about this too but decided he had lied enough. Maybe he should just ask her why he couldn’t lay himself down on the couch for a little nap but he knew the answer to that; she would just tell him he had lain enough on the couch lately. Actually...she should not complain; he had been laying carpet all day, so he had a good reason to lie down.
