a moment in time that forces one to clasp their hand to their chest, out of fear or shock, as if trying to protect an imaginary pearl necklace. A new phrase among the gay Maryland circle
When I saw Taylor at the park with Noah, I was totally clutching pearls!

Man, when I heard that John was in that car accident I was totally Clutching My Pearls

Girl, when that truck full of skinheads pulled up next to the car I had to clutch my pearls!
