Well, at the very least it might have purpose.  I got a High Pass on my latest care plan.  I thought this moment would never come, but it did.  If I would have gotten a high pass earlier this semester, I don’t think it would have meant this much to me.  Maybe withholding my High Pass was just a ploy to get me to take pride in my work.  On the other hand, perhaps I spend too much time dreaming up conspiracy theories.
