In Case of Emergency: ICE

I read an article a long time ago about ICE numbers. An ICE number is a phone number that you program into your cell phone in case you get into an accident; it stands for In Case of Emergency. According to this article, paramedics check peoples' cell phones for the name "ICE" when they pull a cell phone off an unconscious person. I used my girlfriend's phone number as my ICE contact. My problem was that 'I' came alphabetically before the first letter of my girlfriend's name, so whenever she called me "ICE" would pop up on my caller ID instead of her name. The problem wasn't that I didn't know it was her calling; it was that every time I looked at "ICE" I felt like doom was lurking on the other end. (Turns out I was right.)
