A Strange Conversation

Pseudo-Dositheus, Colloquia Monacensia-Einsidlenia 10 e-f, tr. Eleanor Dickey, The Colloquia of the Hermaneumata Pseudodositheana, Vol. I (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2012), pp. 126-127:
'Do you want to come
to the privy?'
'You reminded me well;
my belly urges [Lat.: compels] me
[to go].
Let's go now.'
Μήτι θέλεις ἐλθεῖν
'ς τὸν ἀφεδρῶνα;
Καλῶς με ὑπέμνησας,
ἡ κοιλία με ἐπάγει.
ἄγωμεν λοιπόν.
Numquid vis venire
ad secessum?
Bene me admonuisti,
venter me cogit.
eamus iam.
