Portraying profound exasperation that, ultimately, brings a smile--though, admittedly, a rather mirthless one.
Good luck with solving the mystery that is any woman.

Loved this allegory Jacob but it made me so sad...................[cue sad music, sad face]...............as I relaised I was more like Columbo!

Moriarity strikes again. Best get my deerstalker and Meerschaum pipe...searching for love without any clues is no way to work on mysteries.
Loved Holmes...have a complete anthology...and Sleuth was a great movie as well.

Good one, j.

This is clever Jacob. Even the best sleuth is powerless to solve the mysteries of love:)

Some mysteries are just that unsolved. Not even the best can crack.

Yay, I thought people only said they lol, but this certainly tickled my funny bone.
I read all of the sherlock stories last year and like love, was also clueless as to how it was so elementary. I think I was in the remedial class.
I'm so glad ex's don't do reviews, I would certainly be in remedial on that topic.
Keep sleuthing.
