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.
