Sherlock Holmes arrives back at Baker Street as Watson is heading out of the door.

"Where are you off to Watson?"

"Oh, I've got a date with Ella from down the road. She left me a note for where to meet." Says Watson, "see you in a few hours!" and he leaves, shutting the door behind him.

30 minutes later, Watson returns.

Sherlock is sitting in his chair, smoking his pipe. As Watson enters, he says, "I expected you back 10 minutes ago, but close enough. I've left some dinner on the table for you, it should still be warm".

"But... but... how did you know I'd be back so soon?" Replies Watson.

"When you left, I pondered for a moment at why Ella, someone so youthful and attractive, would want to date an older man of your prestige", explains Sherlock, "I assessed the note that Ella posted earlier this evening. It was in fact addressed to 212b, not 221b Baker Street".

"That's Terry Farnell's address". Say's Watson.

"I'm afraid so", replies Sherlock, "Ella meant Terry, my dear Watson".
