reminder that it is canon that sherlock was using a rum bottle for an experiment and went through the thought process of ‘oh no, if john somehow came into contact with/ingested this it would hurt him :( and since I can’t even stand the thought of that or the idea of something bad happening to John, specifically on my account, and since there is even the SLIGHTEST possibility that john might see this and for some reason - by accident or otherwise - come into contact with/ingest this in any way shape or form, I must put a LARGE sticky note taped to the glass just to make sure he doesn’t. just to be safe. better safe john then sorry.’
