Mystery ... Unsolved

Maybe you can help figure this one out.

See these T-shirts and various tops?
Each one has a hole in it.
Yes, even the brand new ones.

Smack dab in the middle of each shirt by the "belly-button" area.

I looked at where my seat belt lays ... nothing, no metal or plastic buttons nothing to snag onto.

My desk? Nothing. It's a smooth Corian top and the drawer has nothing it could snag on.

Belts? Nope, rarely wear them and when I do, it's not with the clothes I wear to work.

Hoodie zippers? I though I may have a zipper that has a sharp piece on the inside that catches my T's ... but most of these short sleeve T's are new, this summer, and I haven't worn a hoodie.

NO! I don't have a pierced belly-button. I would if I was younger or if it wouldn't get lost in the roll when I sit down.

So I just forget about them.


I went to lunch with my sister Sandi.

She commented on the light pink T I was wearing (that Sonia made).

I said, "Yea, I like this too, but I'm bummed because look, (as I poke my finger through the hole) I have a hole right here."

She said, "OMG, I get those on my T's !"

::: blink blink :::

Then I proceeded to tell her how ALL my T's have this hole, all in the same place.

So do hers!


We don't have any similar daily routine that would explain this.

Please anyone?? Any ideas ?? Suggestions?? Do you get these holes too??

Now I am spooked because it's not just my T's.

If nobody can figure this out, I will be totally convinced my sister and I are being used by aliens to satisfy their pleasures. But via belly-button?

I know it sounds crazy, but I suspect alien sex gods.

Sunshine said...

The button on your pants???

Nancy said...

John: I'm secretly hoping ... I'm kinky like that :snort:

Sunshine ... we ruled that out also.

GingerSnaps said...

hmmm...could it be holes left from those theft sensor tags that have gotten bigger as the garment has been worn and washed more?

I know...I can't be sexy and funny on every blog comment...a girl has to be practical sometimes! lol

Candy said...

I totally agree with John, you are being used for experiments. I just read a ridiculously stupid book about this very thing - sisters being used as test subjects. If this is indeed the case, you can expect to meet a very handsome man, who you have known for years but detested because of his bad drug habit. He will have a heart attack and die in front of you, but be magically saved by some amazing doctor. When you meet this attractive man later, he will have cleaned up his act and you will fall madly in love with him, until you learn he is really the alien who has been experimenting on you, using the dead man's body as a host.

Oh come on, you know you wanna read it now!

Ok to obvious but will say it, could it be moths? Tho haven't heard of moths having a fancy for one particular place on clothing to munch on... Hmmm?

lis said...

Do you wear a work badge around your neck with something sharp on the back side of it?

Nancy said...

lis: no work badge or moths.

Ellie said...

Really? How odd and interesting. I'm bookmarking, so I can come back and see what it was.

San said...

Aliens? Sexual favors? If they'd only ask, I'd gladly remove my clothes.

Deb on the Rocks said...

Vampires. That's their new thing, after we got on to their "two holes on the neck" MO, they switched to "straw through the belly."

Maybe you should add an iron pill to your vitamins. And switch to the night shift.

Jennie said...

Hmmm. This is fascinating. If you ever figure it out, be sure to update us.

lis said...

Not just your T's? It's time to bring 'Monk' or 'Psych' in on the case!!
'BB' alien sex Gods could be hereditary...Hmmm!

Beth said...

I love the alien idea, but I think I'm gonna go with the vampire thing....vampires are so cool and always really sexy..

Nancy said...


(blonde moment here,lol)

Worse, I didn't think anything of it ... Sandi taking her clothes off for alien sex! ::: snort :::

San said...

All I'm sayin' is "Why ruin a good shirt?" :)

Sherry said...

I think you've got something "sharp" in your washing machine or dryer......

deb said...

I dont have clue but I do like the new signature nan

Nancy said...

Sherry: But, I don't do my sisters laundry!

San: LMAO!

Audubon Ron said...

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa hold on. One minute I’m thinking WTF up with the hole thing and then you throw a Vargas girl Alien Sex God at me. How’d we go there that fast? I can’t rollercoaster at those speeds.

Anonymous said...

Do you tuck your t-shirts into your jeans? Maybe it's the zipper top that is snagging them, and over time making a hole!

Greg C said...

It could be belly button lint moths. They can be very destructive. :)
