Not for the squeemish…

In a wonderfully mind-expanding conversation I had this past Monday with my wife and two sisters (Jojo & Coco), we discussed none other than belly button lint! But wait! It was actually interesting (and amusing) as we talked about the fact that a male that has a hairy stomach (such as myself or Jojo’s husband) has this natural ability to gather and collect the fuzz and hairs from the inside of his shirt into his bellybutton, in about 3 seconds flat. It’s like watching an amazing natural phenomenon, like a Venus Flytrap for instance, as an empty bellybutton collects and gathers…

The added observation by me today is what brought me to admit we actually sit around and discuss such things. Having just had surgery in my abdominal area this past weekend, I had my stomach shaved. This of coarse was a minor detail they didn’t discuss with me before the surgery, so I was shocked to discover my now naked belly when I came to.

Back to the point though, the hair has now started to grow back with the wonderful side benefit of now being able to sympathize a bit with women who shave their legs because it ITCHES! What I found amazing as I dried off from my morning shower today was the fact that even thought the hairs are only about an eighth of an inch long, they are already back at work trying to collect and gather fuzz and hair to offer up as sacrifices to my ever-hungry belly button. Yes folks, nature cannot be stopped! Like with all of God’s creations, man can try to stop nature, but in time it heals and carries on in its business.

I hope I did not freak anyone out too much by the subject matter of this post…
