I like this. It's kinda gross but I like it none the less. I've never thought of my bellybutton as storage, but it does make perfectly good sense. I think it was Stephen King that said in the Dark Tower Series that his stories come from a great store of information and flow into him through his navel. I've searched desperately to find that link but it must be a secret... and well I guess that's why he hides it in his navel. : )
my dad always told me if you unscrew your belly button your bottom would fall off
i still believe.
but if it wasnt "the golden screw" the next viable option for belly buttons would indeed be the storer of secrets.
like... when my mother was going through my grandmas house after she died my mother was CONVINCED my grandmother was cracked in the head because wrapped in a piece of tissue in her toilet bag in the bathroom cabinet was her original wedding and engagement rings.
but as i said to my mother... if you were breaking into some old ladies place to steal her expensive rings etc you wouldnt go looking for them in the bathroom cabinet now would you...?
look for secrets on tongues or in ears and you will find them... no one would ever think of looking in belly buttons...
