Well, the season of road construction is well under way in Stevens Point. I can hear the occasional “beep, beep, beep” of trucks backing up and the shouts and chatter of the workers as they work to improve our roads.
This morning I had to take a different way to work than usual, and it started me thinking about how much I like detours.
You read that correctly. I really like detours! Yes, they certainly are inconvenient. We like our little routines, our set paths, our way of processing and doing. When that gets disrupted, we become annoyed, depending on how much we are displaced by the problem.
