Last week we continued with Bölüm 1/Episode 1, introducing the Magical (step-)Mom: Turkish Tuesdays: Sihirli Annem (My Magical Mother): Betüş! .
As I noted previously, the Youtube video has CCs in English and Turkish…), and having the Closed Captions available makes it easy to go back and read the words missed in listening, greatly speeding my language learning. I hope it does the same for you.
Last week, we left off with Betüş at her family home, getting ready for the wedding, which her mother and sister do not want to happen, any more than her new step-kids:
Her sister Eda was out with their mother, all morning, why?
“Mom went to get help to stop you from marrying a human man.”
Her father certainly does approve, but is not in any position to say much, as the dis-empowered member of the family (he is a normal human man who’s been turned into a dog by his jealous Fairy wife, Dudu…):
“Since you’ve tried everything to to break them up, why don’t you leave them in peace, now?”
And so, over the objections of both families, this Fairy (actually half human, half fairy) Lady and human man will be married, modern Turkish style (not unlike in France, as the civil ceremony seems to have come from):
And since the neighbors were not invited (which is odd, considering that I was invited to the wedding when the daughter, whom I didn’t even know, of one of my neighbors in Izmir got married..), neighbor Avni spies through the window: …and looks just in time to see Fairy family members doing magic!
Naturally, his wife, Suzan, arrives just in time to see… Nothing!
Next week we continue with bolum 1 / episode 1, at 15 minutes into the hour long video: Turkish Tuesdays: Sihirli Annem (My Magical Mother): Jealousy is Not Love… ;
