    The Real Tibette Watch Gen Q – Episode 2

    ‘Okayyy . . .’ Tina said carefully, her eye on the programme starting on the screen. ‘You done projecting?’

    Bette frowned. ‘It’s a sore spot, Tee.’

    ‘I know. And I love how open we are about it.’ Tina smiled at her wife’s glistening eyes. ‘But remember . . .’ She pointed at the TV – ‘Fake’ – and back at Bette – ‘Real’. Then did it again. ‘Fake . . . Real.’

    ‘Okay,’ Bette said softly.

    ‘You okay?’

    ‘I’m okay.’

    ‘Okay, then.’

    And Tina reached for the remote to unmute the show.

    Five minutes later, after a debate on the merits of punching people, in which Bette insisted Dani was well within her rights but Tina felt she’d lowered herself, Bette took the remote and pressed pause with Fake Alice and Nat now on the screen.

    ‘Okay, what is The Graduate?’ she asked Tina. ‘Is that the one with the law firm and that funny little movie star who runs everywhere?’

    ‘Tom Cruise,’ Tina said. ‘And you’re thinking of The Firm.’

    ‘So what’s The Graduate?’

    ‘It’s a Sixties movie where Dustin Hoffman basically destroys a wedding by banging on a glass wall high up in a church.’

    ‘Oh.’

    ‘He’s just graduated and his father’s trying to lock him into a very conventional lifestyle but he doesn’t want it.’

    ‘Oh.’

    ‘He’s in love with Katharine Ross but it’s kind of awkward because he’s also had sex with her mother.’

    ‘Oh.’

    ‘Her name’s Mrs Robinson. There’s a famous song from—’

    ‘The Mrs Robinson song?’ Bette’s eyes widened. ‘Kit had that record!’

    Tina laughed at how fast Bette’s face could completely change. One second she’s completely still, processing information, and the next second she’s beaming, her eyes sparkling with excitement as she continued.

    ‘. . . and she used to sing that song, which my father forbade because it had a line that took the Lord’s name in vain . . .’

    ‘“And here’s to you, Mrs Robinson”,’ Tina began to sing. ‘“Jesus loves you more than you will know . . .”’ Bette joined in. ‘“Whoa whoa whoa”.’

    They sang together, jiggling in their seats as they forgot the next part of the song, shushing interruptions from Solly, and then went back to the show.

    1. Fantastic Largo. Please keep doing this, it may be the only thing that motivates me to watch the show.

      ‘Not now, Sol,’ Bette said, nevertheless stroking the dog’s head as she kept her eyes on the screen. ‘Got horseshit to listen to . — my favorite line, horseshit to listen to. Bwahahaha!

      Love. It.

      • Hello BK, my friend! Sorry I’m a bit late replying but know that I could not be more delighted than to see that you’ve read this and you like it. :-)

        I am enjoying writing these and it is certainly helping me to process what is happening on the show. If it helps others and gives folk a smile, I will be over the moon!

        Thank you, as ever, for your support and I hope to read more from you soon!

    2. Thanks for the second part!

      “‘Oh, I know it was domination. But it looked more like when I’m trying to get Solly to take his worm medicine.’” = :)

      But if serious all this Bette and Gigi line so rushed and so clinging that i think they wrote it only to attract male audience – like soft porno without deep meaning.

      • Hello Zhenya! Thank you so much for reading the second part and I’m very glad you liked my wee joke about that sex scene…. lol

        The Gibette storyline is rushed, I agree, and if you’re right about the show’s motives then I’d have to say they’ve succeeded because the scene has attracted a lot of attention.

        Thank you for reading and commenting, my friend. It is much appreciated.

    3. The Real Bette has you. This little literary experiment of yours shows what a phenomenal writer you are. Such a simple premise yet you have managed to turn this into an incredibly moving story. I absolutely love it. And cannot wait for the next installment.

      • Billy, this is such a sweet comment. Thank you so much. I know how much Bette means to you, and you are right – like you, I am always in her corner!

        I’m glad you like the premise. It’s not at all the kind of thing I usually invent, but I realised it could be a way to help me process The Show, so I went for it. Really delighted to have you along for the ride.

        Stay well & thanks again

    4. Largo,

      This is a marvelous post. Very witty & clever.

      Agree with BK about the ‘horseshit’ – so true & sad to think that’s what we are getting this season.

      I much prefer your version.

      Anxiously awaiting your take on episode 3!!!

      Thank you for sharing.

      • Hiya Collins! I’m so pleased you have time to read this and to comment. :-)

        There is a lot going on on the show, most of it bad, so it’s hard sometimes to know what to have the Real Tibette comment on, without just turning the whole story into a tirade, lol

        Thanks for all your support and friendship, as ever
        Largo

      • Hi Bibi! Great to see you here, my friend. :-)

        Thank you so much for reading these and for commenting. I’m glad you find it fun, as do I. More to come soon!

        Take care
        Largo
