and you thought you were weird?

My mother-in-law, never having had any daughters until I came along, is fond of picking up little trinkets here and there for me. Things not appropriate for sons, like jewelry and flip flops and scented hand lotion. Recently, I was the lucky recipient of this handy gadget:
Yes, I'll admit it, I like to tweeze, and these tweezers actually have a little built-in LED light so you can locate each and every stray hair.

But I never should have stuck those things into my belly button, as it resulted in a half-hour ordeal of viewing things I never knew were in there, and then attempting to find the proper implements to remove them while still managing to keep the lighted tweezers in place to pry open and illuminate my little belly cavern. I finally gave up when I realized I was at risk for hurting myself, and besides, who's ever going to rate the area one inch into my belly button for cleanliness? Besides me, that is.

I am laughing aloud at picturing you trying to dig things out of your belly button. I would totally do the same thing.

But if you ever become pregnant rest assured that your belly button will invert itself and you can safely inspect to your heart's desire.

I LOVE to tweeze. It is a well-developed sickness. I must find a pair of those awesome tweezers with headlights.

I wish I had a mil like that!
