Anonymous said: I lost my cool at the 'I helped him put up some shelves', because 'I'm putting up some shelves tonight' is a British euphemism meaning 'I'm having sex tonight.' Basically Sherlock admitted that he screwed the chip shop owner, and the smirk at the end says it all. There is no way the writers aren't aware.
so despite the fact that everyone on the show thinks Sherlock’s a virgin Sherlock told Molly he fucked a guy. no wonder she didn’t want to go get chips with him.
i’m not saying i believe thats what the show was saying but it would be cool if they were.
OF COURSE that’s what the show was saying. What else would it be saying? That Sherlock was actually putting up shelves for a dude in a chip shop? And heaven knows Moftiss use plenty of slang in the show (“trick cyclist” springs to mind). Of all the things that can be read too much into…that line isn’t one.
