This Guy’s Marriage Might Have Been Saved By Judy Blume

Me God

We’ve all accidentally thrown away a spouse’s cherished belonging. A lucky shirts or a favorite drinking glass from college. One time, I accidentally got rid of my second born in a yard sale. The Permanent Roommate was livid and made me chase the buyers down and get for my daughter back. I had to buy her back for double AND throw in a VHS copy of Beaches.

This poor son of a bitch accidentally threw away his wife’s copy of Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret. When he realized his mistake, he took to the streets to try and get it back.

Judy Blook Book

If you can’t read the poor guy’s typed out plea to save his marriage, it reads:

“I accidentally gave this book away on Saturday July 25th in a box on the corner of Green & Franklin. This book is extremely important to my wife. It was a keepsake from her mother and is irreplaceable. On the inside cover is a note that reads “Christmas 1991.” If you happened to pick up this book can you please get in touch with me.”

Luckily, the post went viral and Judy Blume herself found out about the flub.

Blume sent a book and the marriage was saved! Until she finds out her second born was also in that box.

So, here’s my question — what possession of yours would you absolutely lose your shit over, if your husband or wife put it out for trash? Tell me in the comments.

  1. When we had a bathroom remolded, my DH threw a boom box in the dumpster. The one my Mom sent me for my birthday when I was in college. Granted, it was a 25 year old boom box, and it only 1/2 worked, but it had my sorority and other 80s stickers all over it and it was the only gift my Mom ever mailed me in college. I think I actually cried.
