Jay and his friends had to spend a long time cleaning. They did manage to catch a few trout before suppertime. Bad luck soon struck again. Jay was frying fish over the campfire.

"Surely tomorrow will be better," thought Jay, climbing into his bunk. He was wrong. As Jay ran down the stairs the next morning, a step broke under his weight. He spent the rest of the day in a nearby emergency room, having a cast put on his broken ankle.

Almost everyone loves ice cream, especially vanilla. b Create a new sentence by adding a subject and verb to the fragment. Many college students experience a great deal of stress.
