I’m here to talk about Dad.
I know but…
But what? I left my utility belt at home. I don’t feel like crying today.
Let’s talk about your fucked up boyfriend OK? or Mom or even better Kamandi. I just reread the second issue where Kamandi fights the giant rats. It’s great. That Kamandi is awesome!
I think I saw him.
Kamandi is a comic book hero created by Jack “The King Kirby” in 1972. He’s two-dimensional. He’s not real.
I think I saw Dad.
(Hank takes out some cupcakes from his pocket.)
It wasn’t really him, but he was sort of like him, and I really think it’s him… and he had those too.
He had cupcakes.
What are you talking about?
I met this guy, this homeless man. His name was Mr. Cupcake and we shared… we shared cupcakes together.
I thought you liked Twinkies.
It was after I had that fight with Mom the other night.
I met him on the steps of the building.
I think he’s Dad, only in a different form like as a guardian angel come back to help me, to help us.
Maggie, we’re talking life here. Not Kamandi – not cutting edge Sci –Fi fantasy stuff. No giant rats, no evil snakes, no tiger men and no guardian angels! Dad’s dead. If he were going to come back, why didn’t he come back years ago? Hell, it only took Jesus two days.
I think its Dad.
