From a Roman Wall #88


romangif3“Ave, Good Morning,” Verbo Ipsum entered the Forum Cafeterium.

“Salve, How are the ships sailing today?” asked Nellus the Barristerus as she handed him his beaker of steaming caffeinus. “There is a good breeze running down the Tiber to the coast this morning.”

“Yes,” replied the ship owner. “They all got away well today. I only hope the wind turns around for this afternoon’s return run.”

“Hey!” said Pedantus, an early arrival, from the tabula where he was now installed, eating a loaf of panum, bread. “Hey! You’ve had a hair cut. You’ve been to the tonsor tabernam, the barber’s shop.”

“So you have.” said Nellus. “And a very Patrician look it gives you.”

“Yes, I have. When it was just done,” commented Verbo Ipsum, “I hated it but now it is growing on me.”
