  • Rich Roman: Ooh! I just got my new kitchen.  I cooked some mice to dip in honey and a stuffed  parrot full of dates. We even cooked up some salted jellyfish. Ahh! I'm stuffed.  What did you have for dinner? Poor Roman: Ahh... nothing. I ate some fish and asparagus. It’s nothing fancy. We cooked it out back on our wood burning grill.  We even had figs for dessert.

  • Rich Roman: Guess what I did today. I went to see that new play. It was such a spectacular performance. Next week, we are going to see a musical performance. What did you do all day? Poor Roman:  I worked in the fields all afternoon. Afterwards, I got to swim at the public baths.  Tomorrow, we are going to the gladiator battle. 
  • Rich Roman: I just moved to this really nice home with a huge atrium. In the atrium, there is a swimming pool and a skylight.  Our most prized room is the dining room. It has the most beautiful mosaics you've ever seen. I think our new servants are too slow. It takes them twice as long to make our food than the last ones. Poor Roman:  Wow! Sounds like a spectacle. I live in a run down building that has one room. I don't even have a bed. How did you get all those luxuries when I have been hard at work.
  • Rich Roman: Oh my goodness! I just got an A+.  I’m so happy. It was on my math quiz. I’m learning so much but I hate science. I don't want to learn about the stars and constellations. Anyway, what did you get on your last math quiz? Poor Roman: I've never had a math quiz.  I've always worked out in the fields because my parents aren't rich enough to send me to school.
