You Know You've Read the Decameron a Lot When...

... your students quiz you with a little parlor game, giving you the day and number of a story, and you've got to tell which one it is without looking.

E.g.: Day 4, Story 5 -- the one about the head in the pot of basil.

I miss a lot, but I get enough right to establish geek credentials.

    (Hint to those who don't know the answer: He also wrote about urns, nightingales, and lamias.)
