At last! An advice column that’s 100 percent East Tennessee, so you can guess who wrote in (we’ll tactfully change a few details). And it’s twice the advice for the price of one. Each letter gets a response from “Jacki,” a 20-something shoe-loving Jersey gal with a University of Tennessee English degree, and “Jill,” who is a good 20 years older (oh, we hate that term “middle aged”) and has been dishing out advice to soccer and swim teams, hapless co-workers, and fellow writers and moms for decades. One more twist: On occasion, we ask the letter writer to respond to the advice, and include the Take Three as well. Need confidential advice from Take Two? E-mail us at
