    Default When pearl experience is not a good thing.

    I recently started using a new line of facial products. The instructions say use "one pearl size" portion. Every night I have all this left over, rather expensive, product. What am I doing wrong? Well, in my world pearl size is 9mm- 11mm since I'm working with so many Tahitians, and I realized to the lay, non-pearl world, "pearl-size" is probably more like 7mm.

    Now I got it.

    It's the price you pay for having expensive taste (Tahitian size, that is).

    Funny, I've heard of pea-sized, but never pearl-sized before!
