Judy Blume Demonstrates 'I Must, I Must, I Must Increase My Bust'

Are you there, God? It's me, the bonehead Brooklyn husband who accidentally gave away my wife's beloved copy of the classic Blume book Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret. I've been putting these posters all over Greenpoint in an attempt to track it down. I could really use some help before my marriage is ruined forever.

The text of the poster, below:

I accidentally gave this book away on Saturday July 25th in a box on the corner of of Green and Franklin Streets in Greenpoint. The 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.

If anyone has this poor woman's book, call or text her husband. Though, after this goof, I'm not sure if even God can help him.
