So I reached under the cover and touched my belly, intending to brush off whatever was bugging it, and discovered the it was all crusty and sticky! Startled, I pushed the cat aside, sat up, and examined myself more closely. The whole area around my bellybutton, a couple inches in diameter, had little dried bits of something unidentifiable stuck to the skin. I could not for the life of me think of what could have dirtied my belly - it had been clothed all day, like the rest of me. I went downstairs and washed it off, and discovered that the inside of my bellybutton seemed red and tender, and the source of the stickiness. How very weird.
This morning when I awoke I found it was like that again, and it has been mildly uncomfortable, crusty, sticky, and just generally weird-feeling all day today. How extremely peculiar. This would all probably make sense if it was pierced or something, but it's not! What would cause one's bellybutton to suddenly begin discharging something? Is it an alien in there, preparing to come out? I don't recall any recent alien abductions or "lost time". Is it a longing for my mother's womb, manifesting itself physically via our once-connection? Does it mean I'm too fat? Oooh, maybe the fat is leaking out, and soon I will be skinny!
So I have been wearing loose clothing which doesn't bind my bellybutton, to give it (and my alien baby) air. And I've been periodically studying it in puzzlement all day.
I hope my alien baby loves me, and doesn't hurt me too much coming out. Perhaps this will be the event that ties our disparate races together, bringing intergalactic harmony. That would be nice.
