Higgins from Magnum P.I.
As the contestants stroll across the stage in their sashes, I try to keep my head up off the judges' table . . . it's been a long weekend, and the Sunday prelim for the Miss "Sherlock Holmes Is Like" Pageant for 2018 started very late. I wave my hand tiredly at the current run of beauties and sigh a single proper noun:
She was cute in this year's CBS revival of Magnum P.I. I say asmuch to the good Carter, who elbows me and goes, "Vincent Wight's essay was on Jonathan Higgins, the one played by John Hillerman -- you know, Dr. Watson from Hands of a Murderer."
"Yeah," I reply, "Close enough for bloggerment work. Higgins wins. Yay."
My head drops to the table and I get halfway into a dream about finding Cocoa Krispies in my cupboard for breakfast, with a cartoon picture of Higgins-Watson on the front.
"Higgins," I say again as I wake, shaking it off, and wandering out of the pageant theater.
Don't wait for this ridiculous excuse for a book review to be over!
