De crinibus flavis

Postby petitor » Tue Jun 28, 2011 8:21 am

Olim vetus caecusque centurio perperam in cauponam Amazonibus plenam vagatus, lecto suo attacto poculoque post paulo accepto, num pincernae iocus de femina flavis placiturus esset interrogavit. hoc audito, quaedam proxima recumbens voce rauca et mascula sic ei roganti locuta est:

"Quod caecus es, hospes, decet tibi res quinque notandas: pincernam artium martialium peritam; coquam magno cultro armatam; custodem bis in bellis militem; a tui tergo sitam interfectricem principalem; et memet claram rudeque ornatam gladiatricem. quae cum feminae flavis simus, dic mihi igitur, num adhuc quidem istum narrare vis?"

At manet ille paulisper silentio; deinde lente abnuens, "immo vero," inquit, "si explicare debebo quinquies."
