7. i can never listen to that without thinking of 3rd year Latin

The 4'9" teacher (nicknamed Little Caesar, of course) told the story of Petronius Arbiter, who committed suicide after getting on Nero's fecal register. He gave a big party, before which he sliced his wrists and and them tightly wrapped in linen. At midnight, he loosened the wraps and gracefully expired.

At which point I started giggling, and Little Caesar wanted to know what was so funny about this tragic story. I sez "I was thinking of a song." "Oh, really?" Yep--it's my party and I'll die if I want to--
