“Hi there, could you help me, I’m lost and am looking for the exit to this neighbourhood?”

“Oh, just go straight and turn right.”

“Tried that, came across an ‘Electrical work in progress, take a detour to the left’ sign.”

“Then go left?”

“But there’s a ‘Road work in progress, take a detour to the right’ sign.”

“I guess, you can arrive any time you like, but can never leave.”

The word prompt (Detour) has been given by Denise Farley for the Six Sentence Stories at the Girlie on the Edge.
