It turns out I was the only one to get a score that high (I was the only "A". The only one. Mind-bending!). Everyone else was in the "C" or "D" range, with five of the nineteen students (counting myself) receiving an "F."
As a reward the professor gave me two free tickets to any show of my choosing at a landmark improv comedy club in downtown Chicago. This is the same club where names like Chris Farley got their start and then remained regular for years afterwards. This is really cool and one hell of a massive ego stroke.
The drawback is that it's two tickets, so for me to get any real value from these I'd have to find somebody to take with me. One could accurately describe this situation as "needing to find a date who wants to go with me to a comedy show."
I didn't know you had any feelings.
