I was driving back from NYC last week with my friend Sarah, and her phone rang.
It was her husband, Duncan, but on her caller ID it said, “Duncan or ICE”.
I was like, “ICE??”
She got off the phone, and I was like “Why does it say, ICE?” Â And she was like “it stands for In Case of Emergency.”
And then her mother called about 10 minutes later, and her number said, “Mom or ICE”.
I found that to be so sweet and so neurotic. Â But I started thinking, does everyone do that? Â Cuz I don’t.
Sarah said that the Police recommend putting your In Case of Emergency in your phone as ICE so that they can call the appropriate person… in case there’s an emergency.
1.) Â My In Case of Emergency is still my mom, which is totally depressing. Â no offense, Mom.
2.) Â My phone requires a security code, so let the record state that my security code is 5-3-0-9. Â Because I love the song Jenny and her number is 867-5309.
3.) Â If you find me alone, shaking in the corner of my closet with an empty vodka bottle in my hand, don’t freak out and call my mom. Â That’s just a normal Sunday night.
