Let’s Talk About My Belly Button

An open pit in Las Vegas that resembles Sarlacc in Star Wars and a “normal” belly button — not mine! Link. Link.

My navel is a mystery.

I have always known this. My wife has always known this. While difficult to see, with my shirt off, of course, with all my brown body hair covering The Abyss, my navel makes me ponder the Origin of the Universe.
