I used to play with my navel as a child, and my mom told me if I didn't stop rubbing my belly button it would burst, and I would fly around the room!! That sounded terrific so I wound up rubbing my belly button raw until a sore delveloped. I was very disappointed.
I asked my dad once if he was ticklish, and he said that if I poked him in the bellybutton he would "have kittens". I wondered what this had to do with the subject, but from then on I kept on trying to catch him unawares and poke him in the belly. I really wanted a kitten, and also I was curious about how my dad would "have" them. Would they come out of his mouth?
My dad was a doctor; so I believed him when he told me that if I unscrewed and unscrewed and unscrewed my bellybutton, my butt would fall off. I still don't like my bellybutton to be touched.
when i was a little girl i had a really bad habit. i would take the eraser side of a pencil and stick it deep into my belly button and twirl it around. one day my dad caught me and told me that if i kept doing that my bellybutton would unravel and my innards would fall out. i didn't believe him though, and until this day i still have a major fetish for bellybuttons. i even try popping my innie into an outie!
i used to believe that if you poked your belly button you would become invisible
one time when i was about 4 i poked my belly button then ran outside in the nude, until the girl next door (about 9 at the time) told me that she could still see me. I ran back inside very quickly.
I used to believe that when my mom was pregnant her belly button was a speaker where I could talk to my little sister or brother.
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.
i used to think that people with innies and people with outies hated each other. i had a weird sort of outie belly button and my mom said it was an inbetweenie. i thought it was up to me to solve the differences. i even tried to push peoples belly buttons in.
When I was 7, I asked my mother what a bellybutton is, and she told me that the bellybutton was a little hole that would open if you weren't well mannered; and a little after she told me that, I freaked out, since my belly button sticks out, and then I asked my mother what happens when the hole opens all the way, and she told me that a little fairy would pop out from the hole, who was resting in the stomach, and the fairy would cast a spell that gave you freckles.
After she told me that, I was afraid of kids with feckles, but then I found how silly it was..
Once as a child, I asked my mother, "How does a baby in a mom's belly get food?" All my mother said was "Through the bellybutton." From then on I believed that a pregnant woman fed her unborn baby by spooning applesauce through her own bellybutton.
My mother used to tell me that if I picked my belly button I would implode and fly around the room like a deflating balloon. When I grew up I realized it was just weird to pick your belly button.
When I was in elementary school, I used to believe, because of my mother's husband, that if you unscrewed your belly button, your butt would fall off.
When I was 6 or so, I asked my mommy what belly buttons were for. She told me that it was the tube that connected me to her before I was born. I spent years trying to figure out, as a topological puzzle, how I could be inside her then come out of her, and remain connected belly button to belly button.
When I was little I used to think you breathed out of your belly button. I wouldn't let the bath water touch it because I thought I'd stop breathing!
when i was like 3 or 4 i used to think that if u poked your belly button hard enough that it would open up and your insides would pour out, so i tried not to touch it.
i used to believe that when people had children, the babies came out through their belly buttons so when I saw my best friends belly button was "an outie" (it didn't go in the way) I thought she would never be able to have a baby! She was worried sick!
When I was young my parents misled me into believing that there were creatures known as 'belly button monsters', and occasionally showed me dead specimens that had been washed out of my father's belly button after he had had a shower. At one point diagrams were even drawn of the creatures in an attempt to convince me. Why my parents did this I'm not sure, but to this day I don't trust belly button fluff, just in case it is alive.
I used to think that my belly button was where I was once shot and that the navel was a healed up bullet hole
I used to believe that If I stuck my finger really far inside of my belly button I could touch my insides.
I used to think if you put your finger in your belly button you could untie it and your guts would spill out everywhere.
