Explanation:

agree  Talya: Frechi can also mean "common", in a "she's-looking-for-it" low-life sort of way. Depending on the "tone", kapara could also be "darling" (emphasized quotes), with all the implications.

  -> Thanks. Yes, indeed - 'common' is another possibility; but I'd say that 'she's looking for it' is more tarty than merely common. And yes, kapara is used here in the sense of darling.
