Last week we met family and neighbors in the first 15 minutes of Bölüm 1/Episode 1: Turkish Tuesdays: Sihirli Annem (My Magical Mother): Love is Love…
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.
This week, we meet Sadik’s boss, a jealous and unkind man:
“…and I will drink with the lovely mother of this useless man being married by Betus!”
He seems perfectly suited for Dudu, even if he is human. Too bad both Betus and Sadik will have to put up with this asinine boss, for a while, anyway.
One month later, Dudu continues working to separate them, in vain. She is closely watched by the Fairy President,
She has been friends with Dudu for centuries, but cannot stand by and allow her to torment people.
Meanwhile, Poor Avni is still watching from next door, and his wife, Suzan, wants him to see a psychiatrist, but he insists that:
“I am not crazy.”
