This is sort of interesting.because he does forget. He is basically Sherlock's keeper because Mycroft asks to the point he has no time for his personal life. I say that type of dedication keeps me interested in John Watson.
Despite what my skeptical friend says, I totally see the "Johnlock."---> I'm so glad I have friends that support johnlock along with me instead if being all judgy :P" The majority of my friends ship it;
The thing that most american sherlockians don't realize is, in England "trousers" are "pants", and "pants" are "underwear". John isn't talking about Sherlock's pants he's talking about his underwear. One of my favorite scenes.
