Lay down your bugaboo

Now this is my kind of Web page! I am embarassed to admit that I missed one, but I knew when I saw the question that I was probably going to get it wrong. We all have our spelling & grammar bugaboos, and the whole lay/lie/laid/lying/laying thing -- we won't even mention "had lain" -- has always been one of mine. (At least I knew "lied" wasn't the answer!) If you don't know the right answer either, there's a good explanation of how they're supposed to be used here.
