"I accidentally threw it away!"
These are words no one wants to hear. Toss-out mishaps is the topic of my "From the Home Front" column today.
When I was telling a friend about it, she turned sad and told me how her husband accidentally threw away an envelope that contained a clipping of their son's baby hair from his first haircut. (This isn't a photo of their son, but it sure is cute!).
Books of stamps, important receipts, unsigned permission slips from school, unplanted tulip bulbs in a bag in the garage, kids' retainers (wrapped in a tissue or napkin, no doubt) -- all so easy to toss in the trash or recycling bin.
What have you accidentally thrown away?
