Grammar Cat #101: Alligator Cat

Can you help this cat? Think about how to improve the English and then click "Show Correct Cat" to see a corrected version. There are some English notes at the bottom; if you have a question that is not answered there, leave a comment!

IM IN = I'm in
You need an apostrophe for the contraction: I'm = I + am.

UR GATER, = your gator,
The word "gator" is short for "alligator."

LAYIN = lying,
The verbs "lay" and "lie" are very easy to mix up. Here you want the verb "to lie." (The verb "lay" takes an object: the gambler is laying his cards on the table, the chicken is laying at egg, etc.)

IN WAIT = in wait.
Don't forget the final period.
