Kennard Porter household….
The following morning, Tina and Bette walk into their kitchen.
Tina: I just don’t get why she would want to play that sport, I mean of all the ones out there. Why field hockey?
Bette smiles as she walks over and pours a cup of coffee.
Bette: Well not all of us can excel at board games, Chubby Checkers.
Tina slowly turns around and smirks at her laughing wife.
Tina: Very funny…. I hope you think that jab at my childhood moniker will be worth it while you’re sitting on that ice.
Bette laughs as she walks over to Tina.
Bette: Oh please, you and I both know you’re too hooked at the moment to put anybody on ice.
Tina: I can show you better than I can tell you, Bette Porter…
Bette sits her coffee down and traps Tina between her arms.
Bette: I’ll just have to make a call to Tiana and see if she’s available because my wife is blaming me for the name given to her by the kids she used to smack around in checkers…
Tina laughs and then leans in and kisses Bette.
Tina: If only we had like ten more minutes.
Just as Tina says this, Angie walks into the kitchen.
Bette: I think our daughter has some kind of sensor…
Angie: What kind of sensor?
Tina laughs and taps Bette on the butt as she walks over to the coffee maker.
Tina: Nothing, your Mama’s just being silly, baby.
Angie hops on a stool and rests her elbows on the kitchen island.
Angie: Oh…. have you guys decided if I can try out for the team yet?
Tina: Not yet, you just told us about it yesterday, Angie.
Angie: I know…. but I need you guys to sign the permission slip. Tryouts are next week.
Tina turns around as she takes the first sip of her coffee.
Tina: We’ll let you know honey, okay?
Angie’s shoulders drop as she nods.
Tina puts her coffee on the counter.
Tina: I’m gonna go get little man ready.
Tina leaves and Angie looks at Bette with a pout on her face.
Bette smiles as she grabs her coffee.
Bette: I’m working on it, sweetie.
