The Boscombe Valley blood-bath, of a sort

I was watching “The Boscombe Valley Mystery” (episode four of The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes) when I decided to pause the program to get a drink. As I reached for the remote control, I saw a mosquito on my sofa trying to stick its dirty proboscis into the leather to feed. Knowing that there was a good chance it would try the same manoeuvre on me later, I decided to strike preemptively. I just hit it with my hand, only to find both the sofa and my hand splashed with more blood than I ever would’ve expected from such a small creature.

Witness the aftermath:

  1. Now we know, you are human… OK, so you have red blood, it’s a start, Haha. I guess he got you first. Perhaps she was using the leather couch as a strope to sharpen the weapon.
