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.
