By dramamamafive October 24, Nelson 11 Comments I suspect that catfish are the predominant fish residing in Hell. I can picture them swishing around in the murky, putrid swamps there, snapping peevishly at each other with their weird, be-whiskered mouths.
He was an ugly fellow. His eyes were large, unblinking, and bulbous, and the creature would glare sullenly at me. He was nearly 5 feet long and weighed almost 50 pounds, and he was in the claw-footed bathtub in the upstairs bathroom of the house in Nelson where I grew up.
I was ten years old at the time, and a skinny little girl with stringy blonde hair. It would have surprised me a little if the creature had actually lunged out of the bathtub toward me, mouth gaping, ready to bite! I was lucky enough to grow up in this house. Nobody would ever let me forget it. I had seen kids bullied during recess for much less.
I shuddered at the thought. My dad was the new pharmacist in the little town of Nelson, Nebraska, and he Catfish in the bathtub the little corner drugstore with the marble countertop and the charming soda fountain that people tend to reminisce about today.
It was a romantic place. Can you read the caption? After just a few months in Nelson, Dad seemed to know everybody in town and was probably more familiar than he wanted to be with their private lives. He knew which medicines everybody took for which health problems, what kind of soap they preferred, and what they liked in their coffee.
Gregarious and engaging, he was friends with nearly everybody in town, and not just because it was good for business, either. People often brought him little gifts to pay for his kindnesses. You were wondering where the catfish was going to come in.
Buford, a small man and a coffee customer at the drugstore, was a local fisherman of notable prowess. He particularly liked to fish for catfish. There are people, I am told, who enjoy eating catfish—dipped in cornmeal and fried, with hushpuppies. I am not, nor have ever been, one of these people.
Dad, bless him, actually likes catfish dinners. He hinted to Buford that maybe it was his turn for one of these fish gifts. Buford seemed to ignore his jibes.
However, the old fisherman was listening all along. One day Buford pulled his rusted pick-up alongside the curb in front of our house and staggered up the walk, dragging an enormous catfish, nearly as big as the little man himself.
The fish was still alive, barely, gasping grotesquely, bulging its wicked eyes at me even then, and giving a spasmodic jerk every now and then that made us all jump. Mom is always the picture of civility and good manners, no matter what she may find dropped at her door.
One of the qualities that I admire most in my Mom is her unflappability. She might have been inviting a friend over for coffee; she was that casual. Our little sister Anne stood watching in horror.
If your cat will eat it, that is, which was very doubtful in this particular case. But nobody was asking me. Nobody ever asks a skinny, slight, quiet ten-year-old girl with stringy blonde hair her opinion about household affairs. That will be a grand day, indeed, for slight little girls everywhere.
Or you could just follow your nose, which would have been quicker, probably.11 “CATFISH” Documentary Produced by: Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman Nicole Stone Cinematic Analysis Com Ms. Golliher, Somerset Section Spring In , filmmakers Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost starting filming a documentary of Ariel’s brother Yaniv (Nev), who is a 24 year old photographer from New York.
