The sad call of the Divorced Dad Monster

Yesterday at the coffee shop, I was reading stories about a PI named Max Latin and Amanda was drawing monsters. She asked me for a suggestion, saying she’d draw one for me to color, and I said “How about one with really long limbs and kinda wrinkly, like a Gahan Wilson drawing?”

When she drew the face of this creature, I said: “It looks like a sad dad monster who waits in the park, trying to lure children to play a game of catch with it.”

So that’s some of its luring cry on the left. If you walk past an abandoned field at night, you might hear a spooky “hey, sport!”

Just keep walking.
