Belly.

I do not like it when people use the word “stomach” to mean “belly”. Your stomach is inside you; your belly is the outside. People say things like “I have a fat stomach” or “the baby is in Mummy’s stomach” and in my head I scream BELLY. That is all.

    That makes me crazy as well. Stomachs are waaay higher up than the distended area that people mean when they’re talking about fatness or pregnancy.

    Also I think the word stomach is much better with a German accent. Sto Mach. It’s just so staunch sounding.
