A few days later, Bette and Tina are sitting in the bleachers among other parents waiting patiently for the coaches of the girls’ field hockey team to make their appearance.
Tina: I can’t believe I actually let you talk me into this…. it’s a bad idea I can feel it.
Bette: T you need to calm down she’s gonna be fine.
Tina: Of all the sports…. I’m going to the first practice.
Bette: No, you’re not.
Tina looks at her wife and raises her brows.
Tina: Watch me
Bette: Tina you’re not going to practice. First of all, parents aren’t allowed and second of all can you imagine the embarrassment? How would you have felt if your parents bulldozed their way into your practice and stood over your checkerboard?
Bette snorts in laughter and Tina narrows her eyes at her amused wife.
Tina: You just loooove to make fun of my checker background, don’t you?
Bette:(laughs) Well I’m sorry I just never heard of a Checkers league before I met you baby….
Tina nudges her wife and then starts to laugh a little herself.
Tina: It’s a thing
Bette: Well obviously. I mean you got a nickname out of it and everything.
Tina: Shut up. You know I’m sensitive about that name.
Bette wraps her arm around Tina’s hips and leans in to whisper in her ear.
Bette: That’s alright, you’re chubby in all the right places now, baby…
Tina smiles and rubs her nose against Bette’s.
Tina: Oh yeah
Bette: Absolutely, later tonight I’m gonna point’em out to you…
Tina laughs and playfully nudges Bette away.
Tina: Don’t try to butter me up now after dogging out my Checkerboard. You’re just jealous that you can’t beat me.
Bette: Well, unfortunately, I was too busy playing forward for a winning team in high school, so I didn’t really have time for checkers.
Tina: The Checkers League wasn’t in high school it was middle school. Get your facts straight.
Bette smiles and holds her hands up.
Bette: I’m sorry of course you moved on to bigger and better things in high school……what was it? Patty Cakes Tournaments……duck, duck goose Association?
Tina tries but fails not to laugh at her silly wife but fails.
Tina: I really dislike you sometimes.
