Jeg leser for tiden den første boken Sir Arthur Conan Doyle skrev om Sherlock Holmes, nemlig A Study in Scarlet. Og dagens smakebit kommer altså derfra:
«What is it?» asked Sherlock Holmes.
«Why, this article,» I said, pointing with my egg-spoon as I sat down my breakfast. (…) «It is evidently the theory of some armchair lounger who evolves all these neat little paradoxes in the seclusion of his own study. (…) I would lay a thousand to one against him».
«You would lose your money,» Holmes remarked calmly. «As for the article, I wrote it myself.»
Ha en nydelig søndag dere!
