Karen found a pearl after 40 years of eating oysters!
by Karen Watkins
I always eat oysters whenever and wherever I can. I love them so much I even eat raw preshucked oysters from trusted seafood vendors. My local grocery has two selections, Pacific and Florida. I especially love the Florida, as they are nice and salty. These are wild caught and shipped from Youngstown, Florida. As I was enjoying them, I thought I had a piece of shell, and then saw a small piece of my tooth! I searched my mouth with my tongue for the object who inflicted damage on my tooth. When it emerged, it was a small, round, OBVIOUS pearl. I lost the pearl for a moment, on the lid of the container, but found again. Everyone in my house verified I wasn't crazy, it was indeed a round whitish, creamish beautiful little pearl. I have it in a clear container with a lid where I will cherish it forever. This made my day!
