FRICKADELL FREDA by Andrew Verster

Frickadell Freda, they called her. “They” being the boys in Ozenfont Pre-Primary School in Moira Boscombe Terrace.
“Why do you call her that?” Jeanette Pardew asked.
“Because she is sort of round and she smells like a meat pie.”
It could have been  a lot worse, for, with one leg shorter than the other after an accident on the family duck farm when she fell under a tractor driven by her elder brother “Pillage” Pardew, the doctors at Ozenfont Clinic said that,  had  Hubert Horrocks not grabbed her by both arms and pulled her out, “she would have been a goner.”
But fate was on her side as Hubert was the anchor in the Ozenfont Under Thirty Tug of War team who had a record of three victories in the past five years over teams from the other side of Ozenfont Ridge.
“I jumped in, boots and all,” he is quoted as saying.

And Freda herself? “Such things happen all the time. It’s just that it was my turn. Tomorrow someone else will be under a bus, a ten ton truck, a collapsed block of flats, or falling from the roof of a skyscraper. I save abandoned babies, I nurse pigeons with broken wings, I  teach macramé to spastics, I help pensioners with their shopping, I do aromatherapy, plant herb gardens in the neighborhood, but because of an hormonal deficiency I am famous for smelling like a pile of putrefying meat. But my bags are packed and I’m off to Botany Bay  - a second cousin once removed has a chalet on the beach – and I am going to write my memoirs. Nobody knows about Freda the hurdler, the disc-jockey, the rap-artist at the CHI-CHI PALACE,  or the carpet weaver. But they indeed WILL.
Watch this space. AND Kalahari.Com.
