I have written about this before but I feel it is important to stress that
I have wanted to be a banana for Halloween for quite some time.
I don't know why.
Actually--yes I do.
Bananas are funny.
Delish in cereal but also funny.
I have tried on the costume once or
eight times twice.
However, I just couldn't bring myself to spend the
$20-$40 it cost.
This is my reaction shot this year when I found out how much the costume was.
Thanks for nothing Target.
So I went another October 31st without living my dream.
HOWEVER NO ONE TOLD ME HOW AWESOME HALLOWEEN COSTUME SALES WERE ON NOVEMBER 1ST!!!!!
My birthday month was kicked off right.
(Yes birthday MONTH...I'm an only child. I get excited)
As I was strolling the aisles of embarrassing things I could dress in to embarrass my best friend Sara...
I saw it.
My banana costume.
That's how much this little piece of heaven cost:
I own it.
I texted my friend Steve to let him know it was in my possession.
He told me I only had to wait 364 more days to wear it.
I told him that if didn't think I'd be wearing it in a matter of 5-10 minutes he didn't know me at all.
Have you ever seen the spread in "US Weekly"- Celebs are Just Like Us?
It usually shows Katy Perry opening her own car door, Cameron Diaz feeding herself food, Hugh Jackman walking on a crowded street.
You know what us little folk do.
I kind of took that approach to the next two hours of my life.
Let's proceed with my newest feature:
BANANAS: THEY'RE JUST LIKE US!
They trick or treat!
They text their friends about being a banana on their iPhone
They watch the "Game Show Network" followed by "Storage Wars"
They help address their best friend's save-the-dates.
(With fantastic penmanship if I do say so myself)

And there have been some doozies.
However, I'm just so excited that my dreams have come true.
And as you can see
I dream big.
