Glacier growing

Forget trivialities such as the proper way to squeeze a tube of toothpaste, or which way the toilet paper goes... the greatest source of tension in our marriage comes from forgetting to fill up the ice cube tray. To resolve this deeply important issue, we have taken to growing our own glaciers. Whenever one of us needs some ice, we crack the ice loose from the tray, retrieve three ice cubes, fill it back up with water, and put it back in the freezer. In this manner, when we next approach the ice cube tray wishing for ice, there are always lots of nice, fresh cubes for us to enjoy. However, as we fill up the three empty cube, we also end up filling in all the little cracks in and around all the cubes that are still left. Little by little, they have been growing... and growing... and growing. Every time we get more ice, our glacier has grown. You'd be amazed at just how much entertainment value we get out of this. Suddenly, refilling the ice cube tray is no longer a drudge, but one of our favorite hobbies. Only one question remains-- what in the world are we going to do with those enormous blobs of ice?

Party favors?
Admit it, huge ice chunks are a conversation piece...
