Ladies & Gentlemen it’s time for the Read Between the Lines With Judy contest! Here’s how it works:
Read this transcription of an actual conversation between Judy and I. Then tell me what Judy is really trying to ask me. Put your answers in the comments section below.
Anyone who guesses correctly will win—wait for it—one free Q&A with Judy! That’s right—Judy will give you random, often insightful, solicited advice (via email or right here on this site. We’ll change your name, don’t worry.)
Judy also promises that once she answers your question she will not follow up with you to make sure you followed her advice. She will also promise not to send you any packages from Amazon, but she might suggest a book or two for you to read. (Judy also reserves the right to not answer a question for whatever reason. If that’s the case, it will go to Zelda.) You are under no legal obligation to follow her advice.
Okay here we go:
JUDY: What did you do last night?
ME: Went out to dinner, saw a movie.
JUDY: What movie?
ME: 50/50. It was very good. Sad. But overall happy.
JUDY: Hmm… did you drink wine at dinner?
ME: Umm, no, I didn’t.
JUDY: YOU DIDN’T? OMG! YOU DIDN’T?
ME: No, I had beer. Why?
JUDY: Oh. No reason.
What is Judy really asking? Come on, you know you want her free, no strings attached advice!
