belly vs belly
Belly button in or out: in/even/out

P#2: Where the h*** is it?!

Food
P#1: I ate very healthy, no sweets
P#2: I just had four cookies for breakfast

Not lifting heavy things
P#1: Honey, you have to carry this pound of bread, you know, I’m not allowed to lift heavy things

Things just kinda change…
