Superbia

I organized a dinner and play outing Saturday for half a dozen or so folks, which went well. The play was all right, but the highlight was much earlier during the meal, when I quizzed Jay on the state of our table and he got it (nearly) correct.

SCŌTUS: Gāī! Habēsne mēnsam?

GĀIUS: Ita est, mēnsam habeō.

SCŌTUS: Quam mēnsam habēs?

GĀIUS: Habeō... mēnsam ex lapidō?

SCŌTUS: Lapide. But otherwise, perfect!

(Translation: Jay, have you a table? Yes, I have a table. Which table do you have? I have the stone table.)
