What's more special than an exploding cupcake?

My oldest son, O, turns 7 tomorrow.  Of course, I didn't think about sending cupcakes until 4:30 on Friday afternoon.

O:  Mommy, if you send cupcakes on Monday, can you send something like, special, for me?
Me:  You want a fireworks cupcake?
O:  Yeah!
Me:  With REAL fireworks???
O:  NO!!!  [frowns]
Me:  Why not??? Your cupcake would explode!
O:  [still frowning]  Because, then I would have to go to a new school now!
Me:  But, that's something special.
O:  THAT'S NOT SPECIAL!!!  ... That's illegal.
