自从被我硬塞了福尔摩斯小说，以及看了电视剧之后，S 同学也变成了原旨主义小说福迷，有系统地看起原著来。今天一边读着一边忽然说： Did you realize that at some point Sherlock Holmes was using telephone?
我说没注意，在哪里写了？他把字句翻出来给我看，果然，在Adventure of the Illustrious Client里面有提到有人给福尔摩斯留下电话号码。他又指出在 His Last Bow 故事中提到汽车而不是马车了。这几篇都是最后发表的故事了，我有个印象它们的背景大约是1903年前后。
于是我感叹一声，Dr. Doyle 真是与时俱进啊，故事里好多新鲜热辣的当代技术细节，绝不落后。
后来我们讨论华生医生是不是福尔摩斯的平等伙伴，S 同学嗤之以鼻地说当然不是。"Holmes only kept him around because he had a crush on him."
我惊呆了：S 同学平时只看科幻小说和网上新闻，从来不要看同人，耽美，slash 这种东西，他哪儿来的这种主意？我结结巴巴地问，Who has a crush on whom? 他答道： Holmes on Watson, of course. 否则他干嘛老把那个笨手笨脚的华生带在身边？
