And last but most important, the costumes: CCB’s dressing as…wait for it…Tony Stewart—do you see it? That’s how I described CCB’s appearance to my sisters before they met him. (Ever do that, try to describe people using celebrities?)

I have finally realized the ideal Halloween combination of simplicity, a personal tie-in and all-important ridiculousness. I will, at long last, realize my longtime nickname. Oh yes, I will be Hannah Banana.
