Exercise 3
I bought a fresh loaf of bread for my sandwich while shopping in the grocery store. Wanting to make a delicious sandwich, I thickly spread the mayonnaise. After placing the cold cuts on the bread, I added the lettuce on top. While turning on the radio, I cut the sandwich in half with a knife.

I smiled, knowing that I would make the sandwich again, but next time I will add cheese.
