Navel Warfare

My belly button was totally bleeding last night. That was strange. A quick check on Google told me that it’s probably just scratched or irritated. Good to know my body still has surprises in store.

Also, can I say that I don’t really care for either the term “navel” or “belly button” and I don’t think either really captures the essence of the thing as a good name should. Maybe after work I’ll look up the proper medical name and start calling it that. It probably has something to do with “Umbilical” which is a step up no matter what.

  1. Try ‘umbilicus’.

    And nothing beats Google for sound medical advice, I say! I like the pages that tell you how psychiatry is a secret Satan sham.
