Author's Notes: July 10th 2017 prompt: The third object

Sherlock Holmes checked his pocket watch and yawned. It had gone past two o’clock and the day’s events were finally catching up to him. He and Dr Watson had joined the police raid on a dockland smugglers’ den when things went wrong. Watson, who had been poleaxed by a brick, lay on the settee, badly concussed and occasionally moaning incoherently. He had settled now but Holmes would have to wake him soon. Holmes too, was tired. He searched amongst his chemistry supplies and found what he needed to stay awake; after all he had made coffee in a beaker before.

An unwashed coffee cup.
You and me both!

Lovely drabble. Poor Watson!

I would NOT make coffee in one of Holmes' beakers if my life depended on it... who knows what's been in there. Mercury? The Devil's foot? Several dozen ounces of Shag Tobacco?

I'd first guessed a brick, then a beaker. Coffee cup works, though!

Holmes would get on famously with Dr. Murray (from A WRINKLE IN TIME), who cooked stew on her Bunsen Burner.

For a minute there I thought the third object was probably the beaker...

And I'm sure Holmes' immune system must be a wonder, to resist drinking coffee from one on his beakers-

Let's just hope the beaker had been thoroughly cleaned...;)
