104. Monsters Like Arts and Crafts

When you’re life’s mission is to destroy all of humanity and reopen the portal to the underworld, you’re bound to run into a few snafus every now and then. It’s common to get angry and take your frustrations out on those pesky kids and their dog.

On days like that, it’s really best to just take a deep breath and engage in a little recreational activity. Monsters like arts and crafts as much as any meager mortal. Ours are just a little different than yours.

Instead of crocheting hand puppets, we sew together voodoo dolls. Instead of paint-by-number watercolors, we focus on painting pentagrams onto the bellies of our struggling captives.

But remember, kids! When practicing black arts and witchcraft, the main objective is to have fun and be creative.
