Please correct my English here.
Student - why are you late today sir?
Me - I am late because I did not take the usual way to your home, I took the other which basically goes by my house and, I also stopped by there to carry out a simple task.
What are the other ways to say that?
"my home doesn't fall that way"
"My home doesn't come that way"
I know both are wrong please state some ways to say that.
