From a Roman Wall #62


romanscribe“Felix Natalis, Verbo Ipsum, Happy Birthday.” Nellus greeted her regular customer.

“Gratius Tibi, Thank you, Nellus.” he replied, accepting his steaming hot beaker of Caffeinus and a Baklava.

“Felix Natalis” came in a chorus from the tabula of customers already in attendance.

“Are you having a big celebration for your birthday?” asked Libertinus, hoping for an invitation.

“No, ” said Verbo. “I’m having a quiet night in. When you get to my age celebrations are a little too taxing.”

Libertinus looked downcast.

“Did you get any Birthday presents?” asked Secundus, rather foolishly.

“My friend, Incitus, gave me a scroll which gave me lots of food for thought.” replied Verbo. “I loved its depth and intelligence. The author made me think a lot.”

“What was it about?” asked Literatus the Librarian.

“It was about puns.” replied Verbo. “It was two meaningful.”
