(Because of the – what I thought was the intentional – omission of the word “mask” I was trying to come up with a mask related answer.  I was also thinking of something along the lines of a nightmare related answer, but none of the letters jumped out at me.  Actually, the word JUMP did kind of jump out at me, and I thought it might be the first word, but I couldn’t do anything with OTDREONG.  Clearly, the guy – the dad? – did show poor judgment . . . and he’s liable to end up poor because of it, but the cartoon was kind of misleading , to me.  Finally, the word “broke” in the Clue/Question led me to “poor”, and then I figured out “judgment”.  Very good answer letter layout, by the way!  We haven’t seen “joist” in a while, or “oblong” for that matter.  I love the cartoon, but for me it was more of a distraction than an aide, in solving the answer.  Did any of you guys have problems similar to mine???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
