I'm having a conversation I don't understand. We are having pulled pork buns for dinner. Asher keeps asking if we can make sloppy joes out of them...
Me: "How would we do that?"
A: "Put it on a bun."
Me: "We are having pulled pork buns... On buns."
A: "I KNOW that! I'm asking if we can make sloppy joes out of them!"
Me: "well sloppy joes are different meat in a different sauce."
A: "Can we MAKE sloppy joes with them?"
Me: "If you mean put them on buns, then yes, we can do that."
A: "No, I want to make them into sloppy joes!"
Me: "Pulled pork is pork, in BBQ sauce, on a bun. Sloppy Joes are ground beef, in tomato sauce, on a bun. So, no, you can't make pork into ground beef."
A: "That's not what I'm asking!"
Me: "I don't understand what you are asking."
A: (Speaking slowly & loudly) "I. want. to. make. them. into. sloppy joes!"
Me: "Ok, I will give you a bun with pulled pork on it, & you can do whatever you want with it. Is that what you want me to say?"
I am very curious to see what he does with it to make pulled pork into sloppy joes. It was clearly beyond my comprehension!
