Sweet Miss Freddie

By Beth Beutler
1     It was Allison's favorite part of the day - lunchtime. Allison attended the elementary school just down the street from her house. She liked school for the most part, but she especially enjoyed lunch. Of course it was partly because of having time with her friends and partly because she was hungry. But the most special part was seeing Miss Freddie.
 
2     Miss Freddie had worked at the school cafeteria for over 20 years. It was hard for Allison to imagine working at the same location all that time. Miss Freddie's first year had been when Allison's dad was in fifth grade, his last year at the school! Miss Freddie had seen many kids grow up and considered them all "her kids." Of course, now, many of them could be her grandkids.
 
3     Miss Freddie worked at the cash register at the end of the cafeteria line. Although sometimes Allison brought her own lunch, she always chose to buy something, if only a carton of milk. Allison wanted to make sure she went through the line because Miss Freddie always had something interesting to say to each person. She was even good at remembering birthdays. Some claimed she had the office print a list of birthdays for her each week so she could properly greet each child or adult who was celebrating.
 
4     As Miss Freddie got to know all the kids and they came through to pay, she would ask them about their day, comment about what they chose to buy, or suggest they buy something else.
 
5     One day, Allison decided to buy a candy bar, something she did not do often.
 
6     "Hello, Allison," Miss Freddie said.
 
7     "Hi, Miss Freddie!"
 
8     "One candy bar. That will be 50 cents," said Miss Freddie as the drawer opened with a ding.
