She said she wanted pearls.
I mulled that over for a couple of weeks.
I thought about pearl earrings – but that wouldn’t have been enough.
I thought about a strand of pearls – but that was a bit staid for my taste.
I thought about a pearl necklace in the porn sense – but knew for her that would only be funny as precursor to the real thing.
The strand of pearls thought did give me my ultimate solution though.
A multi-strand pearl affair.
She can only wear it when we go out to certain, ah, events,
but she loves it anyway.
