Like on TV, ma!

I ate mussels yesterday. They were good, cooked in garlic and white wine.

One of them had something kinda hard in it, and I thought I might have eaten a piece of shell.

I spat out a pearl.

I didn't know before then that mussels were capable of producing pearls, but I suppose all those clam-like creatures must do them.

Its a very tiny pearl, maybe 1/8 of an inch across, tops, but I'm gonna try and hold onto it for a while.

Ha! I probably would've just swallowed something that small.

Maybe a grain of sand got stuck in your mouth years ago, you being unable to get it out and ending up bearing with the annoyance until it became big enough to spit out.

To quote Jack: "To think I was actually being nice for one here."
