    every page Get multiple copies of this book it will fly off the shelves Diane McCabe John Muir Elementary Santa Monica CA c Copyright 2012 Library Journals LLC a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source Inc No redistribution permitted Terms of Use Table of Contents Chapter 1 My name is Robert Columbo Burnside and I have a problem There I said it Although I really should have said âÇ My name is Robert Columbo Burnside and I have a lot of problems âÇ For starters IâÇÖm not completely sure how to begin this book My sister Libby is another problem SheâÇÖs constantly obnoxious and usually staring at herself in the mirror IâÇÖm also bothered by my younger brother Kevin We call him Tuffin because when I was little I couldnâÇÖt pronounce his name right so I said Tuffin The problem with him is that my mom insists on telling everyone the story about his name Two days ago when our new neighbor came over to borrow some sugar my mom went out of her way to embarrass me I think thatâÇÖs why parents were created to embarrass us Not that I donâÇÖt like my mom and dad but theyâÇÖre still a problem I mean my mom calls me Ribert and if sheâÇÖs not humiliating me sheâÇÖs sleeping And my dadâÇÖs a problem because heâÇÖs constantly happy even when things seem bad He sells playground equipment to schools and cities and he always wears a suit and tie He loves his job My pets are sort of a problem I have a fat dog named Puck who whines and eats a lot and a parrot named Fred Fred escaped from his cage years ago and we couldnâÇÖt catch him Now he just spends his days flying around the house and pooping on everything My friends are definitely a problem For example just last week we accidentally broke the photo booth at the mall and my dad had to pay two hundred dollars to get it fixed I guess youâÇÖre not supposed to have more than three people in the booth at a time Now my dad has me cleaning things that donâÇÖt need cleaning just to pay him back My neighbor Janae is a problem Okay she isnâÇÖt really a problem but her not being interested in me kind of is WeâÇÖre on much better terms since the dramatic poetry contest Still whenever I see her I feel like every joint in my body stops working and I come unhinged I think one of my biggest problems is that I have to keep writing stuff down ItâÇÖs not something I would normally do I mean to be completely honest âÇ ItâÇÖs also sort of a bummer that IâÇÖm not even getting a grade for all these words ItâÇÖs like IâÇÖm doing an extra credit project for no reason Still I know I have to document what is happening to me because someday the world will need to know about the very
