Close by stood the woman who'd come with the ice water hours earlier.
I asked her to bring me back some ice water.
Her next words were like ice water on his face.
A glass of ice water sat before him on the table.
She came back in a few minutes with a glass of ice water.
Add the ice water and process for another 30 seconds.
The Other's voice was like ice water in my brain.
Without warning, her words hit him in the face like ice water.
The words put a pool of ice water around all their feet.
Have a large glass of ice water along with every drink.
