Well I learned something new then. Over here BBQ is primarily the domain of the man of the house.
So neither your mom or dad do have ever done those things or taken the family car to have an oil change?
Ok for you it may not be a game, but it is where someone takes a literal meaning of a word and substitute it for the figurative in a conversation, or vice verse. Or like using the mathematical meaning of sum when the context implies sum being-the whole amount : aggregate.
My son have learned a lot by paying attention to how a word is used. I have to explain it to him some times but he has come a long way from being as literal as you to being able to identify humor when it is used.
