This says so much about Sherlock’s interaction with the rest of the world. It literally breaks his brain that John complements him.
You made an awesome spelling mistake. John does complement Sherlock.
Oh for god’s sake. That’s what I get for using the damn phone app.
What red devil of mendacity
Grips your soul with such tenacity?
Will one you cruelly shower with lies
Put a pistol ball between your eyes?
What infernal serpent
Has lent you his forked tongue?
From what pit of foul deceit
Are all these whoppers sprung?
-WILLIAM BLAKE (1810)
