For Six Sentence Stories where the given word is Detour.
My friend Rosey’s too trusting, gullible even, her friends enjoy nothing more than telling her silly things knowing she’ll believe them, but in a nice way of course!
She recently purchased a sat-nav for her car because she got fed up with getting lost, and even that’s in on the act.
The other day, when it said to turn right she turned right, then when it said turn left she turned … you’ve guessed, right, typical Rosey!
She said it seemed annoyed and in a grumpy voice, it said ‘recalculating route’ then it took her on a lengthy detour, this way and that, up a hill, down a dirt track, round an oak tree, and left at an anthill!
She got completely stuck in some mud and she assures me it actually laughed, so she trudged her way back to the road and walked a while before calling me, begging for a lift.
So please, if you come across a pink and grey Smart car among some trees let me know because she can’t find it and neither can I!
