I asked my dad (when he was naked after taking a bath) what his belly button was. He said that it was from where the Indian shot him with an arrow. It never occurred to me to ask where MY navel came from.
My grandma once told me never to touch my belly button, because if I did, my stomach would explode. It gave me a vision of my stomach ripping apart and gallons of blood gushing out. Of course, I didn't really even believe that what she said was true at the time (I had touched my belly button many times before) but it somehow scarred me, and to this day I can't stand to have anyone or anything touch my belly button.
I used to think that we had to go to the gas station to get some fuel for the body... through the belly button.
My pediatrician used to tell us that our belly buttons held our butts on. He said he had a whole box full of spare butts, so when a kid lost his belly button, he wouldn't have to go around without a butt.
I thought belly-buttons were the way that the insides of your body got water, and so I dutifully splashed water into my belly-button each night when I took a bath so my insides wouldn't dry out.

My mom used to tell me stories when I was in the bath about my Belly button disappearing down the plug hole and going on amazing adventures. I would be sitting with all the bubbles and she would tell me they were the clouds and my belly button would by flying in hot air balloons. I always used to get really scared when my belly button had to get back in time before I got out of the bath. I used to get really freaked when it met spiders and slimy pipes on the way back to me, mom always had to wash it well before I'd have it back!
When I was a child, I believed boys/men pee-ed out of their belly buttons and I couldn't understand why I had a belly button as well.

My dad LIVED in white tee shirts around the house and was always picking lint out of his navel. He told my sisters and I that he grew cotton in his belly button. We could never figure out why WE couldn't grow it too.
