Our ice maker is broken.
I'm about to go off the deep end people.
I also enjoy crushed ice. Our refrigerator ice maker, when working, has a crushed ice feature. I save this for special occasions. It makes the drink feel extra exciting and fun!
So, for two days, we've had no ice in the house. I'm starting to panic. Yes, I know we can use those horrible plastic things and MAKE our own ice, but it's not the same. I like to put my cup up to the dispenser and listen to those little beauties tumble into my glass. I like to put a LOT of ice in my drink, to the rim, please. I like the security of knowing that each time I go to the freezer, ice will be waiting for me. I guess when I was growing up, I must have run into a lot of empty ice trays in my house. I'm always afraid of not having any.
I'm working on keeping my fears in check, but I dread living in a world without easy access to ice. I'll let you know if and when I hear the golden "kerplunk" of the ice dropping. Until then, it's me and my lukewarm drink, signing out for the night.
