9yr Old Finds Pearl in Supermarket Oyster!
9yr old finds Pearl in Supermarket Oyster!
I was at the grocery store with my dad, brother, sister and cousin. While my dad was getting sandwich meat, I decided to check out the seafood counter. I am always interested in what they have. I asked my dad if I could have an oyster. He said to ask when the oysters arrived and if they were fresh. The seafood man told me, "they came into today", so I had him pick the biggest one out for me. I carried it all through the store and was so excited to take it home and eat it. Once home, I pried the oyster open with a butter knife. My dad helped me cut the oyster from the shell, and we felt a bump under the skin of the oyster. We pushed the bump out and it was a pearl! I was so excited! I ate the oyster with a little Chalula and it was great.....
