Don't Drop D

Read the following passage, and look for all the verbs that end in d:

  Linda was on her fourth or fifth cup of coffee for the day, and had visited six or seven different offices. She lost count of both somewhere between the registrar, where they said she would need to get her schedule signed by her adviser, and the math department, where she was informed that her adviser would not be in until two. She ripped the top off another cardboard cup, sat down in the crowded hallway, and resolved to register by phone next semester.

In the box below, write all the verbs you found that end in d. Next to each of them, tell why you think the verb ends in d (we've done the first one to get you started).
