Likes: My favorite color is green and I love to eat grilled broccoli and cheese sandwiches. Actually, I love broccoli with everything. My best friend is the robin who hangs out in my backyard and I love all subjects especially Reading.

Dislikes: I do not like the NEVC (No Eating Vegetable Club) because they do not eat their vegetables. The color pink looks like vomit and it makes me sad when Papa forgets Mr. Doodlebug. I especially do not like Maria Diarrhea because she smells like…….well, you just have to find out for yourself.
