I like plain fruit.

Have you donated yet? Please donate. Save the boobs. Please.

Moving on, but I am warning you, if you don't donate to the 3 day, I may become totally un-funny and talk about things like work and politics. Unlikely, but it's a threat.

Upon returning from our trip, Jeremy and I decided to go to the grocery store. We have been on  a bit of a grocery boycott during this move as we were trying to use up the things we already had. However, after a week of pizza, pasta and meat. I was dying for some fruits and vegetables.

While meandering through the fruit aisle at Byerly's, I come across the following:
Peacharines, eh? Peaches and Nectarines bread to make Peacharines? What was so wrong with Peaches, or Nectarines? I guess someone just could not live without a centaur version of a fruit. Hmph, I think and walk further down the aisle.

And find...
 Plumcots? Now that doesn't even sound appetizing. Plum and Apricot mixed? Another centaur fruit? Really? You have got to be kidding me. Plums are lovely. Plums are fine. They are plums. Who had such strong feelings about plums that they demanded they were mixed with apricots?

Now apirums? Now I don't even know what these things are! I thought Plumcots were "Plum/Apricots", now you rock my world with the Apirum!??!?
Imagine teaching kids fruits now...as if banana, apple, orange, grape, grapefruit (which is not a grape), and now: Apirums, Peacharines and Plumcots? For real?

What has this world come to. And not to mention the obvious - $4.99/pound!? Is that going to be the new celebrity trend: Britney Spears carrying her Voss water and Apirum. This cannot be healthy. You might as well eat a Dorito if you're going to eat genetically modified fruit!

Fruit is fine!
Leave the fruit alone!
Thanks, I'll stick to apples, oranges and bananas. But if you came up with a hybrid Dog/Bunny, now then I'd listen.

I'm definitely with you. I love just plain fruit. Give me apples, oranges, bananas and pineapple any day of the week!
