The Danger of Reading (continued)

But if, on closer inspection, it turned out to be a tree branch, as noted by my retired physician companion, and if I had been reading Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, then I might say,
“Exactly, my dear Watson”

but I wouldn’t say, “Elementary, my dear Watson”
unless I had been watching a movie, because Sherlock Holmes
never said that in any of the books!
