Ah yes, the universal indicator for wealth - fish sauce

That's an interesting diet. She needs some fiber...

It's Jules from Cougar Town, she'll never change.

Hopefully not in the same glass.

What's wrong with "The rich woman has wine and fish sauce"?

Femina here sounds like bene na

Why is fish sauce such a big deal in this lesson? Was it all the rage at the Patricii slave orgy parties?

It was a very common condiment at the time. Kind of like how ketchup is very common is the western world now

If I were a waiter, how would I translate "the rich woman IS HAVING the wine and the fish sauce" ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DonaldYTKA

The rich woman has everything, really.

Diluted wine, no doubt.

The word femina does not sound right


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sue919013

Would "femina diva" also work?

Quoque et psittacum ebrium...

It's interesting how close "vinum" (weenum) is to both our words "wine" and "vine".

There may be a reason for that... ;)
