There was a fella once running for a train, and he’s carrying a pair of gloves, this man. He drops a glove on the platform, but he doesn’t notice. And then later on, inside the train, he’s sitting by the window and he realizes that he’s just got this one glove left. But the train’s already started pulling out of the station, right? So what does he do? He opens the window and he drops the other glove onto the platform. That way, whoever finds the first glove can just have the pair.
Benedict Cumberbatch arrives at Comic Con on July 24, 2014 in San Diego, California.
sherlock forgets to eat. he especially forgets to eat when he’s working on some experiment or other, so john’s taken to leaving plates of snacks by the man’s elbow as silent reminders that all transports require fuel to run properly.
he left a plate of apple slices once, only to be met by sherlock’s scornful: “aren’t apples supposed to keep doctors away, especially when i’m obviously busy?”
today, as john walked by the consulting detective, he immaturely shoved an entire apple into sherlock’s mouth, which was conveniently open (probably to tell him to piss off). john had a good laugh at the look of flaming indignation on sherlock’s face.
he had an even bigger laugh when he returned from his own lunch to find that sherlock had forgotten about the apple in his mouth completely; sherlock was currently gazing thoughtfully at a bottle of purple pills, fruit still held in his mouth.
bless him, john thought fondly.
for the june challenge over at letsdrawsherlock!

My balls are pretty big. There’s a confidence that my sisters and I were raised with. After my dad died, my mom moved us from Queens back to the Dominican Republic. A very macho sort of place. But my mom raised us to know that we are equal to anyone. Whenever we went out, if we were meeting other people, my mom would always say, “I hope you like them.” Not “I hope they like you.” We were the most important.
