Missing Me

Have you ever had surgery that changed the physical appearance of your body forever? That happened to me 5 years, 6 months, and 10 days ago.

While I don’t miss the episodes of nausea and possibility of vomiting or passing out in the middle of the night, I do miss my old belly button. The one that was me, me for 26 years, 10 months, and 30 days. The belly button that often had me wonder how it become exactly as it was, and the tiny little scar within it that sometimes drove me crazy. How I miss that belly button and all it’s innie-outie beauty. Alas, it will never be the same again.

Whoever decided to put that appendix in there anyway? They could have left mine out. Maybe I would still be me…
