26

Twenty-six.

A simple -- but meaningful -- number.

Twenty-six letters in the alphabet.

It's the atomic number of iron.

Michigan is the 26th state admitted to the union.

It's the length of a marathon, give or take a yard or 385.

A rhombicuboctahedron is a 26-sided object.

XXVI in Roman numerals.

110102 in binary.

And today, it's the age of my Number 2 son, the Drama King, who today takes his first step into his LATE 20s and his second quarter-century of life.

How did this happen? When did my little boy with his head in the clouds turn into a man?

Oh. Wait.

Happy birthday, Drama King. I love you, even if you don't want to grow up.

Happy Birthday to Drama King!!!

You forgot to mention that 26 is also the number of spacetime dimensions in bosonic string theory. :)

AND

That 26 is the gematric number of the true name of God - YHWH.

Have a great day, and an even better dinner!!
