It's a pity I never got around to dancing (or playing or writing) any cubed slip jigs last year. But I think I'm ready for 27 to be done, even though I'm still working out what I think about 28. It has a very solid, organized feel to it. If you cube root the 8, you get three more 2s after the one in the ten's place, and you can't get much more stable than a square of four 2s. After balancing and wobbling on the pointed end of the 27 for so long, it's like a tetris block falling neatly, gaplessly into place. At least, I like to think that's how it will be.
