The Background: Matt received a merit award. The school gives them out for highest raise in overall grade average in a reporting period. His average is 79%.

The Convo:

Matt: Mom look! - He whips out the certificate and puts it on the fridge.
Me: How do you want to celebrate?

Matt: Can we go out?
Me: I'm not going out in this weather. We don't have to celebrate today.

Matt: Can you order something from Uber Eats
Me: Sure. Get what you want. - I hand him my phone

André: Why does Matt get to order something!? I been asking you to order food all week.

Me: Because he got a merit award.

André: So! I been going to school for like a week straight. That's an accomplishment.
