Something in the food

Published:

This couple in Florida found a rare pearl in their evening meal.  The story is even in Forbes.  I've occasionally found a hair or an eggshell.  Once I found a bone in some soup. I wonder if I should have had it analyzed and appraised.  Maybe it was a fossilized tyrannosaurus bone and I'd be in the news. After all, with my teeth, if I bit into something as hard as a pearl, the headlines would read "Diner Sore"

Reading this article made me look up three words: quahogs, blue pearls and wampum. Good story. I also got a biology lesson on clams (I didn't know they had long ones)...see everyone can learn something..the wampum part was wild, too.

Pac, I honestly thought I made that up - guess it didn't take a genius..old joke, really? Maybe I heard it on the Dina Saur variety show.

Littleoldlady, I had to look up wampum, although I had heard the word used when talking about Native American tribes. I thought it was used for trading, but the article I read said that is a common error. Fried clams were popular where I come from, although I was never too crazy about them. Taking a ride to Essex was something fun to do on Sundays. Most people have heard of Gloucester because of the famous statue of the fisherman (think it's on Gorton's seafood) but Essex is next door and there were several eating in the rough places along the road.

Emily: "Waiter, waiter. What is that fly doing in my soup?"
Waiter: "Looks like the backstroke to me, Ma'am."

WoW! Justx....I used to watch Dina shore. My dad was actually on the " Mid-day live show in N.Y.C, and I have the footage to prove it...lol     Mid-day live was one of the segways to newer shows like the "Today" show.
