When I was about 5, I thought that everyone started out as an "outie". Your belly button was a "turbo boost" button, that would make you run very fast. But you only got to do it once. Once you pressed it, it stayed in, and you were an "innie" for the rest of your life. The strange thing is that I actually have a memory of the time that I "used up" my turbo boost. It must be a false memory, but I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to make my belly button come back out so that I could run fast again.
i used to be scared to clean my belly button with soap cuz i thought there was a small hole there that led into my body...[ so sad ]
i used to believe that if you didn't shower or clean your belly button in the shower or bath, a plant would grow from the accumulated dirt in your belly button.
i also thought that babies were born from a woman's belly button and wondered why men didn't have babies because they have belly buttons too.
i still beleive that if you touch your belly button then it might unravel and u will bleed to death get. i really scared whenever someone touches there belly butotn and i makes me cringe to watch them, i cant touch mine either
when i was younger i used to believe that the however deep your belly button was was how much extra fat you had on your stomach. i thought that if you were the weight you were supposed to be that your belly button would be completely flat with your body instead of sunken in. also if you had an outie then that meant you were too skinny. basically fat people had innies and anorexics had outies. get it? weird huh
When I was little, an uncle told me, quite seriously, that penguins come out of people's belly buttons, and that was why we had them. I waited in terror for the day to come when the birds would start coming out, but luckily it never came!
***I used to believe that if you dug deep enough into your belly button that there would be a secret compartment that had treasures in it.
My friends thought i was an alien as my belly button is really big and they said it ate the spaceship up.
when i was little, i used to freak out if someone touched my bellybutton or messed with their own. My cousin jen truly believed that if you messed with your belly button that it would come untied and your intestines would fall out. After she told me that i had a definite phobia of being de-knotted and disemboweled. The fact that my sister was a vicious tummy-tickler didn't help the matter, either.
When I was little I used to think that there was a town living in my stomach.And I thought my belly button was their sewer.
That's why I didn't pick it.
When we were little girls, my best girlfriend would wear a band-aid across her belly button so that the air wouldn't come out of it and make her zoom around the room like a deflating balloon. I secretly always hoped the patch would fall off when I was over playing because I thought it would be funny to see her flying!
I used to believe that I was the only person on earth with a belly button because my sister pulled up her pants above her belly button and said, 'See! I don't have a hole in my stomach!'
I used to believe that your belly buttons were connected to your intestines, and if you poked your belly button too hard, you could puncture your intestines and die.
When I was three I saw a National Geographic magazine featuring photos of starving children in Africa with distended abdomens. It got me to exploring my own abdomen-which appeared to have a hole in it (my belly button). I became hysterical thinking that all my food would fall out of the hole, that I would begin to stave to death and that my belly would stick out just like thise kids in the magazine. Everyone in my family had to show me their navel and assure me that their food had never fallen out through it.
When I was 5 i thoght otties were buttons to poop and innes were a second mouth
Until I was 15 years old, I believed my mom when she said baby's came our a girls belly button. When I was 8 I saw a girl with a belly button ring and my mom told me it was birth control.
My dad always told me this really elaborate story about how he got lost in the woods once during the winter and his belly button froze and popped off. We were talking about it recently and he said it was just a story, but I'm STILL not sure if he was really fibbing. I don't think I've ever actually seen his belly button.
I used to think my belly button was a magic compartment but ive proven myself wrong, that is NOT what is in there, ouch!
I used to belive every baby got there belly button by: god made us people and layed us out to dry. When he was done he poked us and said done done done all the way to the end and where he poked us was were our belly bottons became.
My Dad's friend convinced me that if I didn't behave he would unscrew my belly button and my arms & legs would fall off. It absolutely terrified me. I would sit very quietly in his house or go outside to play!
