ISSN: 2397-9607 Issue 247 In this 247th issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the story of “Mr VINEGAR” an old English children’s story with a moral twist.
Mr and Mrs Vinegar were so named because they lived in a vinegar bottle. One day, when Mr Vinegar was away from home, Mrs Vinegar, who was a very good housewife, was busily sweeping her house, when an unlucky thump of the broom brought the whole house cutter-clatter, crash, bang, smash! about her ears. In an agony of grief she rushed forth to meet her husband to tell him of their woe. Mr Vinegar takes charge and says “Calm down my dear, all is not lost. Let us see what can be done. Ah. Here is the door; I will take it on my back, and we will go forth to seek our fortune.'
Per-chance fortunes seems to smile on the Vinegars and Mr Vinegar fancies himself as a trader. But is this a wise move? How successful was Mr Vinegar’s career in trading? Did his trades go well and what happened to the Vinegars in the end you ask? Well, you’ll just have to download and read the story to find out.
