  2. This may seem like I’m spamming, but I’m honestly not. I’ve worked on a site about plums (http://www.plums.com) and I really did fall in love with the fruit. And now I find a low-calorie recipe like this and I may want to marry you right now.

    But I won’t, because I’m pretty sure we can never be.
