You can tell if pearls are real by rubbing them gently on your teeth. (Go ahead, I'll wait; if you've never done it, prepared to be freaked out.)

I am currently without pearls but as soon as I get home from work I am walking straight to my bedroom to rub necklaces on my teeth.

You can also just rub two pearls against each other, which has saved me from putting a lot of random thrift store jewelry in my mouth.

I learned the lick test from some paleontology classes back in college. I now have a small chunk of Triceratops bone and yeah... If I lick, it stick.

I rubbed pearls on my teeth and IT WAS TERRIBLE.

Out of curiosity I also rubbed pearls on my dental implants and IT WAS EXTRA TERRIBLE. DONT DO IT.

"I rubbed pearls on my teeth and IT WAS TERRIBLE. "

I WARNED YOU!

But it's a quite unmistakable sensation! And sometimes a good party trick.

Warned, dared - who can tell the difference?

Bred liks are one of the pure good things this world has produced, and they never fail to make me smile. One I wrote last year:


je m'appelle rené
et quand c'est nuit
ou quand l'image
il me trahit

dans l'affichage
le sens dissipe
c'est quand ceci
n'est pas une pipe
