I reckon a husband is rather useful to have around, until, of course, he accidentally gives away your beloved copy of Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret by putting it in a box on the curb, not realizing its sentimental value.

That misfortune recently befell one New York wife, whose remorseful hubby is now on the hunt for the missing tome. He posted this earnest flyer in Greenpoint with the hope of redemption:

"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."
