I promised her this one detour. One stop alongside the road. I don’t know what attracted her to that small abandoned graveyard a few meters away from the car. She’d left me standing by the staionwagon, watching her walk away. She knelt down by one of the graves, her long dark hair shuddering as her shoulders shook in sobs. It took me a moment to realize what those sobs meant.

taking detours is probably the worst thing known to man. When you take a detour, your sense of direction is all screwed up, you’ve got no idea where you are, when you are, who you are, why you are, how you are, you just are, 300 thousand feet away from where you were supposed to be.

The rain tumbled from the sky to the earth in a meeting of nature and destructive forces. The road stood no chance against the onslaught of dirt and mud as the landslide came crashing down and the cars on the road had no better a chance.

A detour is a alternative route, usually because the primary route is blocked or inaccessible. Many people view detours as annoyances, but they can also be seen as chances for a different drive, a change of pace, and a new road–with the chance, of course, that you will be late for your intended destination.

I needed a detour. One that could get me away and occupied from him. Him. He made me so angry. And yet, I loved him more than anyone.

“i took a detour to the next town. then I got lost!” said little red riding hood to the wolf.

I oncw took a detour through a dark ally. No one was in sight, and I was alone. Forever.

i was walking when it happened.
Slowly but surely, that same man who haunted my dreams appeared in the window.
I ran like hell.
I ran until the breath flew out of my chest and i heaved and nothing came out.
I sprawled out on the floor
and blacked out on the face of my fears.

Detour is word that is often missed used. Often people think that it is a route you take when a primary one has been denied, but this is not the case. In actual fact, a detour is the official name for the ceremony that takes place when a tour guide dies.

The road was icy and his hands were frozen on the wheel – it made for difficult steering. I’ll just pull over he thought but the lights ahead of him convinced him to make a detour.

He took a detour on the way to the bank. The 60,000 dollars would be his and his alone.

Did the chicken detour or cross the road?

the detour fell, fell away from the road and into countrysides winding away from their own main roads. We followed it into the dark, out of tunnels and rivers and all over, over here there were people who didn’t know the road was a detour, over their they’d been waiting a long time for it

Detours are a wonderful way to get to see the world, Everyone is busy going directly from point A to point B without (cliche alert) stopping to smell the roses. I think detours are great.

Then the car swerved violently. No one had seen the yellow signs screaming warnings in the dark. The fog didn’t help either. Since when had there been a cliff here?
I guess we just missed the detour sign.

Detour, shmetour. I’m gonna go my own way. Ain’t no sign can tell me where to go.

I took a detour one night on a dusty road. I had never been there before but I decided I needed a break, a chance to catch my breath. That night was like a dream, but in the worst possible way.

The word detour cost allot of time today. I knew that I had to get to work but if it wasn’t for that word in orange and black my life would be on the right track to a new career
