Whirlpearl

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: wərlpərl

Sentence: After John retired he had to find things to keep himself busy. Sometimes it was shopping, sometimes sorting his clothes by color and hue. But today there would be none of that. Last night after doing the laundry he had found a whirlpearl — one of those time capsules of thoughts or actions past. Was it a receipt? Perhaps a shopping list, maybe even a prescription for his new OCD medication. He wouldn't know until he unfurled the various layers of this nugget. This was a particularly good one. It had escaped detection after the washing and had hard-baked through the dryer cycle. He could hardly wait.

Etymology: Whirlpool(major appliance manufacturer) + pearls (a hard, lustrous spherical mass, typically white or bluish-gray, formed within the shell of a pearl oyster or other bivalve mollusk and highly prized as a gem)
