I love Judge Judy. Maybe it's because I enjoy watching people argue. Maybe it's because I enjoy watching her humiliate people for bringing senseless lawsuits to the court system. I also like it that there is a clear cut solution to the problem that people can't question. Whatever the reasons, I love it. But yesterday, I had a problem. The case was about some vandalism that some drunks did to a guy's car. Of course, Judy gave them the business about being drunk and out and about at 1:00 a.m. and doing stupid things. As she should have. But the last thing she said to the girls involved in the case really got me. She said "There is nothing more unattractive than a woman who drinks." Not gets drunk, but drinks. She also said "A drunk man is unattractive as well, but there is absolutely NOTHING worse than a woman who drinks and can't control her mouth."
Yikes, Judy. That seems a bit harsh. Not that I'm taking it personally. I mean, sure I may drink from time to time, but it's not like I'm ever unattractive when I'm drinking. I'm sure I always control my mouth and I feel 99.9% sure that I am always at my best and never say anything inappropriate or hurt anyone's feelings when I drink. I never overindulge and therefore, never engage in any activities which cause anyone else pain or embarrassment. I know that my makeup always looks flawless and I never dance to the point that I'm sweaty and disgusting. And I've never done anything to hurt my own reputation or embarrass myself and my family. So, as you can see, I disagree with Judy's comments. I think this is the first time I've ever disputed anything she said. Oh sure, there have been times when I thought she was too harsh, but this time, I just flat out thought she was wrong. There are women who can pull off drinking. I happen to think I'm one of them. Most of my family members are also able to pull it off quite gracefully.
And, if you know me at all, you know that you better be wearing boots when you read that last paragraph because it's complete B.S.
