"I Must, I Must, I Must Increase My Bust"

There's a book I read when I was younger that I'll never forget -- especially for one specific reason...

Did anyone else ever read "Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret" by Judy Blume? She does an exercise that's supposed to increase your boob size and says certain words that are supposed to go along with it.

"I must, I must, I must increase my bust."

Am I the only one who read that at a young age (10 yrs old, I think) and honestly tried the exercise she did in the book, thinking that it just might make me magically have boobs? And I can't lie, I did mutter those words under my breath while I did it. I had to say it quietly because I didn't want anyone to hear me in case it wasn't true. I didn't do it for long before I realized it wasn't working.

13 years later, I still have no boobs. Dang it. Judy Blume failed me as a child! Oh the false hopes of childhood...


  1. Don't worry - that'll change with your first child :-)

  2. I DID THAT EXCERCISE WITH YOU! I have been trying SO long to figure out why I think that mantra every time I lift weights near my bust. Oh Megan, I like you. :)

  3. Haha Lauren! I'm so glad that line still goes through someone's mind -- besides me -- after this long :)

  4. HAHA!! Megan, you crack me up! Doesn't the girl do that exercise in the movie, Gidget too?

  5. omgoodness i read that book 9 times growing up lol.
