Belly Button Trivia

This navel gazing is sponsored by Citizen Dog. Trivium 1: Ya know why it feels weird when you put your finger in your belly button? My orthopedist explained its because it has no nerve endings. A life-time mystery solved with an idle comment.

Trivium 2: Navel gazing is a real meditation practice: you're to gaze at the navel to remind yourself that you have always been a dependent creature - from birth, umbilically connected, and now even when the umbilical cord isn't visible. I find it sad that such a profound concept has been twisted into a mocking cliche.
