Ah, the pink pearl eraser.
Everyone, at some point in their school career has used a pink pearl eraser.
I must have used an entire eraser each year that I took algebra and trig and geometry in high school.
Over the weekend I started to watch “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” and it reminded me of the list I found last month when Ginger was out visiting and we were going through my box of old high school memories.
This, my friends, was a brain storm I had in Algebra II.
I remember it distinctly.
I was staring at my pink pearl eraser and it suddenly occurred to me that Pink Pearl would be an excellent name for a madam.
She would work at "The Jewel Box" and the girls would have jewel names.
My friends all liked the idea and picked their monikers: Ginger was Ravishing Ruby, Sanna was Gracious Garnet , Jess was Ardent Amethyst and I, of course was Pink Pearl.
I barely passed Algebra II that year.
Who would you be?
