The Bellybutton

31 Mar

When the girls were young, they used to question why the bellybutton is called a ‘bellybutton’ when it looks more like a hole than a button? Shouldn’t it be called the ‘bellyhole’ if it looks more like a hole than a button? And where is the button?! I had no answer to that one so we ended up calling it the ‘belly-ba’, to note its neither here nor there physical characteristic.

It was several nights ago when the evening conversation suddenly focused on the belly-ba. Both girls were laughing at each other’s physical attribute of this part of the anatomy, calling it names from the black hole to the abyss that made me recall fondly of this name, the belly-ba, that we have given to the bellybutton.
