I like to crunch on ice. It's like eating candy to me. I often fix a glass of "just ice" for myself or order "mostly ice"...but I try really hard not to do it in public because most, if not all, people consider it to be rude. I've read that it's an iron deficiency but my iron level is normal. I give blood every year and they won't take anyone who is anemic...so I know I'm fine. It's just so yummy!
And I'm an ice connoisseur. Ice is not just ice. It comes too hard, too soft, clear, airbubbly, smallish, too big, sharp edges, rounded, flatish, square, long. I won't eat ice at all in some countries nor on airplanes. It cures drowsiness, boredom, etc. Okay, now you know I'm wacko....Thanks BigAl
