I recently ran into a woman at a bakery. She had sparkly Shamballa Bracelets and a necklace on (so she told me.) My brain, as random as the filing system in there is, remembered some cookies I was afraid to eat as a kid. At weddings and Christmas, somehow a cookie with silver or gold or white beads on it was in the mix. I was afraid of eating metal.

See why I thought so? (Above at left, silver edible pearls for a cake. At right, A Shamballa crystal and clay necklace.) Edible pearls in white are a little more palatable looking to me, but after the coin in the cake incident of 1998, and the Chuck E Cheese Token Incident of 1984, I am understandably cautious bout things that sparkle in my mouth.
