SURPRISE
IN HER OYSTER

This lucky customer
ordered fresh oysters
at a well known seafood bar,
and got a free gift with her order.

A real pearl.
Small, yes, but natural (not cultured.)

The restaurant said it was "the first time
this has ever happened since we opened."

Maybe she should go out
and buy a lottery ticket!

(Lucky day.)

  1. I love raw oysters and in my younger days I was more daring so I ate quite a few. We used to go to Sarasota twice a year for several years and then we ate oysters at an oyster bar. I always bit into a peral or two. The first time it happened I got mad because I thought it was a rock and I complained. My husband told me it was a pearl! Well it did not look anything like Mikimoto. Hahahah! The bar offered free half dozen oysters in exchange for every pearl found. It used to be cheap in the 80's. Around $2.50/dozen on certain days. Oh goodness. We stuffed ourselves with oysters until the hepatitis and red tide scare.
