One day I was hanging out with my little sister and saw that there was dark stuff in her belly button. I asked her what it was. She replied, "What do you mean? It's my umbilical cord!" Apparently, she had not been washing the "umbilical cord" out of her belly button for the past 25 years cause she thought the built up funk was her umbilical cord. Gross!
when my sister was born i remember her having a shrivelled up bellybutton/umbilical cord (that i thought was a raisin) that seemed to disappear after a while. i assumed it must retract into the body. i then spent the next 3 years digging for my 'raisin' that was stuck in my bellybutton. i never got it out.

When I was in grade school, we were comparing belly buttons. I asked one of the boys (much older than the rest of us) to show me his.
He frowned and said "I don't have one.....I was adopted" with a perfectly straight face! A month later, I made a real idiot of myself when I announced this revelation in health class!
