In Swedish, to have ice in your stomach (ha is i magen) means to act slowly
and deliberately, not rushing ahead without thinking everything through.
And yes, keeping the idioms of your native language out of your English is
one of the more challenging communication aspects for non-native speakers,
something we always have to be aware of.
