“Square!” A common insult. It wasn't even accurate, thought Russell. After all, he was three dimensional, in personality as well as in fact. The octahedrons and especially the dodecahedrons thought they were clever. What’s special about having 12 sides, anyway? All Declan was good for was fantasy gaming – Russell was useful for lots of things, despite his limitations. Six sides were good enough for Bart Gammon.
