God is in the Detour

I met God at the corner shop, she was looking kinda lonely so I gave her a nod. She smiled back and we started to talk. She said, 'Ain't it strange that there are so many different kinds of tea and could you reach the blue one on the highest shelf for me?'
Sure God, whatever you want.

And then she asked me if I had some time for a coffee. And I said, 'I've been dreaming all of my life to have a coffee with you.' She said, 'How lovely, nowadays most people are in a hurry. They have lists and plans and stuff they need to do and don't get me wrong, there's a lot to be said for having a plan, there's a lot to be gained from acting fast, there's a whole lot of sense in being direct. But then again, the good stuff seems to happen when you're on a detour. Come find me on a detour,'

She paid for her tea and then we went outside, the sun shone bright and the cars sped by. She said, 'I've been meaning to look into that, but I guess I got a little sidetracked, cause sometimes I lose track of time and sometimes I don't mind and let it all just drift away and then I find myself again on a detour, on a detour, you'll find me on a detour.'

'There's a lot to be said for having a plan, there's a lot to be gained from acting fast, there's a whole lot of sense in being direct, but then again, the good stuff seems to happen when you're on a detour, on a detour, on a detour, come join me on a detour'
