Ever eaten anything non-edible?

There was a show about people who eat things that suffer from a condition called Pica, where they eat things that aren't normally edible; chalk, ashes, paper and the like. Ever met someone with this condition?
I don't eat strange things, but I do love to chew on the plastic tags on new clothes..just the little plastic thing that holds the tag on, but I don't swallow it.

  • I ate soap when I was a kid...kind of kept my mom from washing my mouth out with soap if I said something bad, lol. I would get in a bath tub at night, fill a cup with water and put the bar of soap in it. After my bath, I'd drink the by then soapy water, lol. Zest was my preferred taste :)
