A Study in Go-Go Taquitos


"Well, Watson, what do you make of it?"

Holmes was sitting with his back to me, and I had given him no sign of my occupation.

"How did you know what I was doing? I believe you have eyes in the back of your head."

"I have, at least, a highly reflective Slurpee cup in front of me," said he. "But, tell me, Watson, what do you make of this half-eaten 7-Eleven Go-Go Taquito™? Since we have been so unfortunate as to miss its owner and have no notion of his errand, this snack, hot-to-go off the grill, becomes of importance. Let me hear you reconstruct the taquito by an examination of it."

"I think," said I, following as far as I could the methods of my companion, "that the 7-Eleven Go-Go Taquito™ is neat to eat and heavy on flavor, good in between meetings or while on your way to work. That any should be left over at all is therefore a matter of grave concern."

"Good!" said Holmes. "Excellent!"
